meet the artist
Hi! I’m Vanessa — wearer of many hats — serving my neighbor in so many vocations. I’m wife, mommy, daughter, friend, sister in Christ, data analyst, writer, and artist. That last one is still so new for me I have to fight the urge to add ” ” around the title. Yet here I am: the artist behind Solus Calamum Designs.
After the birth of our fourth child, I was diagnosed with Postpartum Depression. My mind felt so jumbled, I found it difficult to return to my writing. I needed an outlet, but combining words in any coherent manner just wouldn’t happen. So I picked up a pen, and I started drawing.
Now I have the pleasure of creating unique pieces of art for others. What started as a way to help me cope with my depression has become a blessed opportunity to serve my neighbor by sharing my art with them to celebrate life’s joys and find comfort in its sorrows.
