Vanessa J. Thompson

• Water Color Illustration

Vanessa is a graduate of Winthrop University’s Visual Communication Design program, from which she obtained a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Illustration. She has been creating art since she first picked up a crayon as a child. Now she hopes to find her way into the world of children’s book illustration. Little did she know her chance to live her dream would come true shortly after her graduation in December 2010, when Ms. Kim discovered her talent. Some say that she is “frighteningly unique” but when asked to describe herself she’d tell you: “There’s no other possible explanation... I’m just outrageously Vanessa!”


Vanessa is the illustrator of No Fear For Freedom: The Story Of The Friendship 9.
