She/they. Portraits, figure drawing, and more. NSFW art celebrated and welcome in the Vanilla home!
Nadia Vanilla is an award-winning Phoenix-based erotic artist. She paints people of all walks of life, doing all sorts of fun things with their bodies. She aims to celebrate the human experience, in all its messy, colorful beauty.
Her artwork and short stories have appeared in several publications and erotic art shows around the world - most notably, Seattle Erotic Art Festival and Erotic Art London, and of course back home at the Exotic show from the Alwun House Foundation. She’s a regular on the Bawdy Storytelling Livestream, and has spoken on the Bawdy Storytelling Podcast.
She's always curious about what makes her characters tick, what they’re thinking about the situations they are faced with. Her work aims to break down the barriers between taboo and “appropriate,” between public and private. Masks, mirrors, and screens often feature heavily.
She uses a variety of media to achieve this – lately, that includes digital painting and drawing, soft pastels, acrylic paints, watercolors, and ink.
