Kärlek: Hi Vanessa! Tell us a bit about yourself!

VM:  My name is Vanessa and I am a 21 year-old self-taught artist from Austin,Texas. I have loved art from a very young age and have stayed consistent with my skills since. While creating my art, I am also a student at the University of Texas at San Antonio and I am majoring in Digital Communications.

Kärlek: What was the inspiration behind your art?

VM:  Nature and color are my inspirations for my art. I love flowers and butterflies and that is why it is present in all of my work.


Kärlek: Love it! :-) So, which mediums did you use and what made you choose them?

VM: I used acrylic paint because it is what all of my art is made by and what I enjoy the most.


Kärlek: What did you enjoy most about using a Kärlek backpack as your canvas?

VM: I enjoyed the concept of being able to create my own personalized design on a backpack that acted as a blank canvas. I had the freedom to design the bag however I wanted which made it that much more special.


Kärlek: Do you have any tips or thoughts to share about your experience?

VM: I personally loved being able to customize the backpack. I think this is a great concept and I am very thankful for the opportunity to work with Karlek.
