About the Artist

Hi there! Thank you for visiting my humble little shop and for helping me help wildlife!

My name is Vanessa, and I'm a wearer of many hats, both proverbial and fashionable. I make all of the wares on offer at Acorn and Berry. My deep connection to the natural world is reflected in my many creative outlets, which also serve to fund my wildlife advocacy work. I'm a patron of several wild bird rescue and conservation organizations, including the Cornell Lab of Ornithology, Birds Canada, Destined to Fly: Native Ontario Baby Songbird Care, Swift Care Ontario, and Safe Wings Ottawa, as well as a financial backer of other initiatives such as The Messenger documentary. I'm also the former co-director of Wildlife Rescue Nests (2014-2019), a charitable group that provides assistance to wildlife rehabilitators worldwide.

The Acorn and Berry studio is not open to the public, given that it's perched atop a precariously high hill somewhere in the wilds of Canada’s National Capital Region; but be sure to follow Acorn and Berry on Instagram for glimpses of the wildlife and plants that share this magical space with me.
