Vanessa Cuartas is an artist with a Colombian background originally from Miami, now living in Toronto. She graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from University of Central Florida with an emphasis in graphic design, and later received an Art Direction Diploma from Miami Ad School.  Throughout her school years and her personal time, Vanessa always found time to paint as much as she could.

 As a designer by day and artist at night- her passion for painting grew stronger in the recent years when she moved to Toronto. She was new to the city and therefore did not know a lot of people, so she decided to do what she loved in her pastime, paint. She always struggled with what subject to paint as the only thing she really loved were horses. Until this past year she decided to follow her instinct and paint horses in her own unique modern contemporary art style, and found an audience that appreciates it.

 With her bold colourful pieces that convey movement and a lot of positive energy, you can be sure her art will attract anyone’s eye.
