Vanessa Niembro de Paz

Born in Spain

Lives & works in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA


Vanessa came to California in 2011 from her native Madrid (Spain). This new life journey gave her the opportunity to develop new angles in her art.

Her paintings show the expression of feelings, obsessions, and the observation of her surroundings, as well as her own history between Europe and the United States.

She expresses her feelings in every stroke: passion, peace, anger, calmness, decay, love, loneliness, sadness, hope, beauty,... She brings to life her personal views through textures, mixed media, and omissions of part of the story.

Ultimately, her work seeks to provoke a reaction in the observer, aiming to achive an emotional connection.
