counting sheep, one by one, 'til the coyotes come
After a five-year recording hiatus, Vanessa returned to the studio in 2018 to produce BEFORE THE COYOTES COME, her first fully solo project. The album blends her signature otherworldly vocal harmonies with richly textured musical landscapes and explores themes of grief, loss and survival.
Vanessa's deep connection to the natural world is reflected in her many creative outlets, most notably in her EPHEMERAL self-portrait series (2013-2016), a monthly tribute to the endless cycle of life, death and rebirth.
Her more recent photography work, beginning with her 2019 PORCELAIN series, celebrates female empowerement and challenges conventional beauty and glamour portraiture by evoking the darker aspects of sensuality and desire.
