Below is a selection of some of the recent paintings I've done for various commissions, illustration work, gallery work, and personal work as well. I'm currently working on a body of paintings exploring the human condition and our emotional complexities especially when faced with the unknown. This work contains form-driven abstracts describing a conglomeration of emotions through imagery. I'm very excited about these paintings, and I've shared a few on the Muddy Colors blog where I post monthly articles about my process and thoughts about art and life. You can find a list of my articles that contain images, some step-by-steps and more information by clicking here. There are a couple other projects I'm currently working on that I'm excited to share very soon as well. I will update here about those soon, and for my more frequent updates, you can find me mainly on Instagram @vanessalemen where I share WIPs, sketches, experiments, ideation, announcements about shows and accomplishments as well as finished work too of course, with the occasional pics of my magical cats Rey and Maz. Please scroll down for a selection of various recent paintings.
