Vanessa Couto's Profile

About

Hi, I’m Vanessa - the Nessa behind Art By Nessa - artist and counseling astrologer.

All my life, I’ve felt like I was on the threshold. As a foreigner, I was always on the border, neither here, nor there, and yet everywhere. But because of that, I’ve developed an independent view of the world in front of me, often seeing what is unacknowledged or missed.

Creating Astro Charts was a way for me to embody the beauty and language of astrology in a physical and tangible way. My drawings became an artistic translation for the symbolic language of astrology, which can be mysterious… just like being a foreigner.

I’ve found that my passion for art, psychology, and astrology informs my art and my life.
