My name is Vanessa Sorensen and I am a graphic designer, illustrator, photographer, sculptor, printmaker, and author. I am an ardent student of life and a lover of beauty. My passion lies in finding beauty in the everyday, the mundane, ... in the aged and worn. I am a dabbler, a seeker, a mammalogist, and a zoophile. I love to get up close to things, to study know them. I am a collector of quotes, vintage table linens, cast iron insects and pebbles rounded smooth by the ocean. I am most happy when I am at home throwing myself head over heals into a project. For more on my latest projects visit my blog,, or my website
