Even on cloudy days there’s still a way to enjoy the simple luxuries Corpus Christi has to offer without venturing toward the sand on spring break. Weather hanging out downtown to walk along the marina, or heading to grab a refreshing cup of joe at Green Light coffee shop, social work major Vanessa Sherry manages to use her abstract and inventive style to create a look all her own.
