The Artist

My name is Vanessa Zakas and I love to create. I have loved art since I was little, and have always spent a lot of time drawing and sketching. In 2010 I moved to Morocco, and painting became and expression of my experience there. I have been blessed to be able to travel and most of my work is based on personal experiences from the places I have visited.

The Art

I mainly work with acrylic and oil paint on canvas, but often experiment with other mediums. My favorite subject is people and their surroundings, though I often paint other subjects as well. Most of my art is inspired by my travels and experiences around the world. I try to use art in a powerful way, to tell a story and to express something that can not only be seen but also felt. My desire is to share the fleeting moments of life in a deep and beautiful way, to paint those moments as if frozen in time. 

Trails of Paint

The purpose of this website is to have a place to showcase my work, and also allow others to follow my in my journey. I have a dream to travel the world and paint, and that is what this website is about. Please check out my portfolio if you would like to see some of my work, or head to my blog if you want to hear what I’m up to.
