Meet the Illustrator

Vanessa Roeder is an artist living in the Austin area with her husband Jonathan, children Audrie and Finn, and rambunctious dog Trixie. She spent four years as a muralist until the birth of her second child prompted her to stay at home full time. Inspired by her kids she began painting children’s art and illustrations which she now sells online under the name Nessa Dee. Her artwork is created using a variety of media including acrylic paint, watercolor, and collaged elements.
In addition to pursuing art, Vanessa homeschools her children during the week and on the weekends, teaches Sunday school.
Her love of picture books stemmed from the many hours she spent as a child in the library where her mom worked. She still spends many hours in the library cultivating that same love for picture books in her own children.
