Born in 1959 in London, Veronique grew up between New Zealand, Canada, Singapore and the UK and has been working as an artist for nearly fifty years.
In her art practice she has explored numerous materials and techniques including wood turning, hand and press mould ceramics for sculpture, film, design, photography and performance.
Since 2014 she has been focusing exclusively on creating what she is calling her ‘Gratitude Mandalas’. These paintings, initially born out of a deepening commitment to and engagement with her Buddhist meditation practice, followed by a deep appreciation of a being a mother and grandmother. More recently influenced by
physical limitations caused by spinal injuries, she has noticed how, over time, the painting process of these mandalas has actually become her main meditation practice.
The actions of applying layers of colours, collaged paper, pressed flowers, and lacquers are now much more about surrender and non attachment. Veronique’s main aim, intention and focus whilst making this work is to engage solely in the process.
