A collection of her original art was published in her first coloring book, Love Coloring. These original doodles are perfectly suited for the adult coloring enthusiast who wants to artfully de-stress. A year later, she published another book titled Coloring in Style that features her work in addition to nine other artists.
In addition to her art, Vanessa leverages more than thirty years of design and marketing expertise to support authors, consultants, and small business owners.
Vanessa says, “It is a joy to collaborate with interesting people and help them become published authors for the first time or to add to their published titles. I co-authored, designed and project managed each of these projects. Write a Book – Change the World highlights my collaboration with Dr. Tim Morrison and features some of our most interesting interviews from his radio show Write Here, Write Now. Dr. Tim and I also co-authored You, Published. I was thrilled to be both a chapter contributor and book designer for Happiness Recipe by June Cline and Sandy Weaver Carman. The books listed below are concepts I conceived and gathered collaborators to create.”
