Vanessa e. Simon Art
Originally from Paris, France, I moved to Sarasota, Florida in 2011. I am both French and American but knew since a little girl that I would eventually move to Florida. This place is beautiful and is an artist's heaven both culturally and environmentally.
As I have a strong awareness of the impact art can have on our physical and emotional wellness, I like to produce "feel good" art- drawing most of my inspiration from nature that surrounds me here in Florida. The Siesta Key shores inspires much of my art but I also love flowers and other beautiful treasures this amazing location offers.
Most of my dreamscapes can be described as aquatic. Others are warm with flowers, while some are completely abstract.
I create mixed media pieces which include use of oil pastels, acrylics, collages with my photography, watercolors and colored pencils. The size of the art varies with small jewel pieces to medium-sizes.
Originals and fine art prints are both available, please don't hesitate to email me with your questions.
Water and minerals are my main source of inspiration but the 4 natural elements serve a central role.
These elements come together in a joyous dance of creation: the water is bubbly and giggly and calls the other elements to come and join the dance- something is about to birth. The orbs represent conscious entities from the macro (stars such as the Sun) to the micro (elementals such as atoms).
Trained in design and in art, health and well-being are also passions of mine.
