Welcome to Art, Books, & Coffee!

This is a place to share books, art finds, great quotes, and anything that has to do with art, books, and coffee. So, take a look around and join in the conversation! And if we are all highly caffeinated while doing it…then so be it!

I am a coffee addicted bookaholic, artist, author, and graphic designer VMC Art & Design obsessed with art and good books.




Victoria Colotta is an artist, author, and award winning graphic designer for her work at VMC Art & Design. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts in New York City. It is here that she truly embraced her love of drawing. Literature is a huge part of her life, so it is only natural that Victoria loves spreading the word about the authors and books that she has read. If she is not in her office, you will find her spending time with her crazy dog Lizzy, hanging out with her family, or testing out a new recipe.
