Hi, I’m Vanessa! It’s so great to have you here at Vanessa’s Coffee Shop. From 2009 to 2013 I produced 50 works of Avatar Performance Art. From 2013 to 2015 I shifted gears to Avatar Public Art pieces like parades. These let you explore and express your identity.

From 2015 to 2017 I organized several versions of Medici University, a virtual campus with 100 artists’ studios where you could explore your creativity in a community setting. Finally, in 2020 I wondered what if it was simply a place to be anyone you wanted to be, and enjoy the company of others. Vanessa’s Coffee Shop was born. And somehow we’re still here. Coffee, tea, you, me. Thank you for being part of this 15-year odyssey exploring avatar life & culture.
