About Vesa
Status: I am a Creative art director, designer,artist.


I have worked in many areas of art and design as an artist, designer, art director and prior educator. With over 35 years experience in the arts field. I have been an art advisor for the Canada Arts Council in Ontario to choose from many grant applications for arts funding needed.
I founded Global ArtXchanges, with the purpose of sending proper art materials to needy youth, who cannot get basic supplies due to many reasons.

Resumé / Bio

I began as a television art director and worked after for several ad agencies in Canada. As an educator I received my degrees in Visual Art, History. I am also a qualified guidance counselor also, but have retired early from teaching University/College to pursue new art and design experiences and travel. I am an author; as this 2016/2017 I will have completed my 3rd book. I am also a musician/composer sometimes working on film/video soundtracks.
