Vanessa Wainwright
More than a visual artist, I am first a creative thinker and communication designer. I've worked in Branding, Marketing, and Digital agencies across the US. My client roster features work from multiple industries including Healthcare, Telecommunications, Finance, Education, Technology, Media, and Retail.
Beyond my powerhouse creative skills, I also play a mean game of mini-golf.
