Vanessa’s passion for creating unique designs began over a decade ago while being a member of the cheerleading team at Benson Polytechnic High School (Portland, OR). Whenever the team needed apparel designed, Vanessa was the girl for the job. After graduation she continued her education in Graphic Design at Jackson State University (Jackson, MS). Returning home, she studied Web Design at Portland Community College (Portland, OR). With a strong educational background coupled with lots of prayer and faith, Vanessa was ready to step forward and make her lifelong dream a reality. Innocent Designs was established in 2020 with several collections that speak to Vanessa's personal life.
