Vanessa Flores is an Actor/Singer and a fresh face to Chicago. Although she was born in Chicago, she spent most of her childhood in Cleveland, Ohio where she studied Theatre/Performing Arts at Cleveland State University under the direction of Dr. Michael Mauldin and Mentor Holly Holsinger. She had the privilege of studying the methods of Stanislavski, Mamet, Catherine Fitzmourice's Voice and Movement Methods, and Suzuki. A natural performer since given her first mic at 3 years old, she has always loved to sing and dance both in English and Spanish but made it a point to polish her skills studying dance, voice, and workshopped with ABC/Broadway actor Sutton Foster on musical theatre technique and song choice.
Since moving to Chicago, Vanessa has been keeping busy auditioning, continuing her education, local and national commercials , also branching out and having the opportunity to act as an entertainment reporter for Celebtv/ Celebtv Latino and the Onion. Vanessa is also in the process of recording her first EP and is excited to share her musical talents when the time is right. She also works as a stylist at Saks and works as a freelance make-up artist when possible. Don't think just because she loves clothes and make-up she cant hold her own. She is currently working on getting her conceal and carry license, loves to Box, and is a fan of MMA. Don't be too intimidated, she is very warm and loving, proving you can be a lover and a fighter.
Vanessa's outlook on life is the impossible is always possible.
