(Chicago) - Kasia Kay Art Projects gallery is please to present Vanessa Palmer in her newest exhibition, Soul Sanctuary. This is her premier show in the United States.
Like any truly inspired contemporary artist, Vanessa's work is very unique, inspirational and weaves just the right amount of Zen energy to lift any spirit. Much of her inspiration comes from her own spiritual journey, through her travels in Asia, yoga, meditation, life, family, friends and most of all her love for spirituality. Her art lights you up, makes the viewer happy, positive and most of all calm. This is perhaps because of the layers of inspiring words, Buddha charms, oil colors of the chakras, Sutra scrolls or whatever other unique, world traveled trinkets she collects to incorporate into her pieces.
Vanessa Palmer’s work has a Feng Shui element to it, which is why her art is so sought after in many collectors' homes – her pieces bring an indescribable amount of positive energy to the environment.
Working out of her studio in Chicago, the artist travels the world regularly for inspiration. For over 10 years Vanessa has incorporated her love of creativity and spirituality into her business, art and now a series of books. she is also available for private and commercial commissioned art projects.
Vanessa Palmer is an author of "OM FOR THE MOM" a guide on finding, love, inner peace, passion and abundance. Books will be available for purchase at the gallery. One can also purchase them here: http://www.omforthemom.com
