About Vanessa Bates

I started my career as a graphic designer and illustrator but gravitated towards fine art as my experimentation in color drifted outside the gamut possible with traditional printing techniques. Early illustration lessons still influences my art as each work has a simple focus and careful use of color and light to further direct attention to the subject of the piece.

My fine art is almost exclusively in acrylic. I believe that the canvas is where the true color mixing begins. The colors on my palette are therefore loosely folded together before being applied. The subject matter itself is often chosen for humor, expressed either as visual irony or lighthearted observation. Itís my sincerest hope that any of my views, whether they are inspired by the political or otherwise, be apparent only to those who have an interest in that subject. Otherwise, the piece should stand on its own as an enjoyable composition.
