Vanessa Withun is a contemporary landscape artist of Dominican and Puerto Rican heritage currently residing in Savannah, Georgia with her husband and three children.  Her preferred mediums to work with are charcoal, acrylic, and oil. Most of her art revolves around a similar theme, which is the interconnection between humans and the natural world. She believes that a study into the natural world is necessary in order to find answers to some of the most important spiritual and philosophical questions that humans possess. She holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental science and is dedicated to promoting ecological awareness through representational art.  Although she mostly paints and draws landscapes she enjoys drawing and painting still-life and portraits as well. She likes to incorporate some aspects of impressionism and expressionism into her own unique style. She views art as a musical performance and aims to provide the viewer with an experience that will cause them to see the world in a different light. She is an active member of Oil Painters of America and the Savannah Arts Association.
