Soft color and peaceful harmony are some of the qualities that describe the art of Vanessa Mack. Her love for art began at an early age and flourished with the encouragement of her parents. Born in Edmonton, Vanessa moved to Ardrossan after her marriage to raise her family. She put her art aside for a number of years due to the poor health of one of her children. Vanessa now takes a more active interest in art.
She enjoys painting in acrylics, although she also works in watercolour and prismacolor. Living on an acreage with many animals, Vanessa is inspired daily by her surroundings. Many of her canvasses feature animals and people she has encountered.
