Vanessa Filley is a maker of many things. She can often be found wandering the streets with camera in hand, stitching handmade objects in her studio, pulling weeds in her garden and preserving food in a myriad of ways. She is a lover of perpetual motion and deep human connection. In life she aims to make, create and share beauty and light. She recently finished an installation project entitled Flight Plan which is a constructed environment intended to invoke a sense of chance encounter, the potential of love and attraction, the magic of winter exploration and the possibilities of flight. She is currently working on a project entitled In the Time of Flowers, which explores the possibility of salvaging the things we have destroyed. She is a mother of two girls and thrilled to be a part of the GreenMama team. She is honored to collaborate with Manda Aufochs Gillespie in all her various schemes and took many of the pictures in The GreenMama: Giving Your Child a Healthy Start and a Greener Future. She also contributes images to the blog and content to the Home Ec page.
