thanks for stopping in!

I’m Vanessa, you can call me Nessa if you like! I am an artist living in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and other half, Austin. We hike the mountains, eat delicious vegan food, create, and make plans of moving to Hawaii together.

I am committed to following my dreams, creating a life I’m stoked to live, and helping other women do the same. Here on nessablack.com I share bits of our nature-filled, passionate, simple life and explore the topics of living well and becoming the women we desire to be.

When we allow ourselves to shine, we give others permission to do the same. A world full of women who know their worth is the world I dream of living in. I believe each of us has divine purpose and I hope I can help you discover and own yours. Stick around friend, I’m so excited you’re here!
