Artist Statement

Vanessa Colunga

Art is a way of telling my story without really having to say anything at all.
I am a portrait artist and believe that all of nature and humankind are connected in some way. Although I work in many different medias, one thing is true- the art I create is dominated by texture, layers, and the contrast between gray scale and color.
