Meet The Artist

Vanessa Lamb (b. 1993) is a painter and illustrator based out of Long Island, NY. Her style is constantly evolving as she experiments with creating unique compositions using shapes, color, and lines.

“My subject matter is self reflection and also my community. Through my art I strive to highlight the beauty of my culture and curls. I love using lots of color and unique line work. Living in NY, I get tons of inspiration from my surroundings. I want people to feel good when they see my art! I want them to feel what I feel when I am creating it. On my instagram, Expressions by Van, my followers get an inside look on my process. I love being able to connect with my supporters, especially at this time where we cannot do so face-to-face.”


Van is a graduate of the University of Connecticut, with a B.S. in Chemistry.  She has worked as a scientist, instructor, and other creative roles which often influence her own work and vice versa.  When she's not creating, she loves tap dancing, cooking, and visiting parks and museums.
