    About VanessaLimArt

    On Etsy since 2015


    I am a self-taught artist living and working in Torcy, in Paris area. Before being a full-time artist, I worked for 8 years in webdesign but the virtual creation finally tired me. I realized that I needed to create real things and with my hands.

    I already drew a little bit during my free times. So after many pencils sketches, I have wanted to test dry pastels, those little pigment sticks that have always attracted my eyes in the fine art shops. And then I have tried watercolor and acrylic. My reconversion to art then appeared to me as obvious.

    My work is constantly changing, it is never fixed. If since 2016 I have abandoned landscapes for abstract art, my passion for nature remains the thread. I am fascinated by the light and the colors it creates on the surface of the water, in the leaves of a tree or in the sky. I like to look for new combinations of colors and create strong contrasts where the white of the canvas remains voluntarily present to let breathe the glance. Today, I work mainly with acrylic that I use at the same time very diluted for a rendering close to watercolor and very thick, applied with knife for more dynamic strokes.

    ** Framing a soft pastel painting **
    If you want a pastel painting to remain as beautiful as the first day and for years and years, choosing an appropriate framing is essential. Soft pastel is a dry technique, so by definition it is very sensitive to contact and friction. Therefore it is necessary to frame it under glass. It is necessary to create a small space between the artwork and the glass. Usually this is done by placing strip type spacers made of foam core or other material around the artwork under the mat which surrounds the image space.
    Do not use Plexiglas or acrylic because it will build up a static charge when cleaned that will draw some of the particles of pastel off the paper and create a fine mist of dust inside the frame.
    For an optimum quality, I recommend using an anti-glare glass. It is a little bit more expensive but you will fully enjoy your painting.

    ** Custom commissions **
    I accept custom commissions with great pleasure. If you have seen in my gallery a soft pastel painting you like but you want it in another size... If you want me to create a painting from your own photo (landscape, flower , etc...)... Or if you want an illustration or drawing done in another medium (ink, colored pencils, watercolor or acrylic)... Everything is possible ! No not hesitate to contact me, I will be happy to help you realize your project.
