Vanessa Nesvig

Vanessa joined the Wolfe’s Neck Center team in 2023 with a background in interpretation, wayfinding, and exhibit design. Most recently Vanessa was Interpretation and Exhibits Program Manager at Coastal Maine Botanical Garden (CMBG) where she developed the interpretation program for the Native Butterfly and Moth House, the Learning Apiary, and the Native Bee exhibit. Prior to CMBG, Vanessa worked at the Portland Museum of Art designing all the adult programs and developing the interpretation for the Winslow Homer Studio experience.

Vanessa studied art history at Boston University and she has been an exhibiting artist for over 25 years. Her current work focuses on the interrelationship between species and their ecosystems. In her free time, when not in the studio or garden, she likes to sail, ski, and take walks on our local trails.
