As a mature student Veronica completed her BA (Hons) Fine Art, Exeter (1990) followed by her Masters Degree in Cardiff (1991). She was an Artist in Residence at Christ’s Hospital, Horsham and taught at both the Lower and Upper Portsmouth Grammar Schools. She has also been a visiting lecturer at several south west colleges.
Her love and interest in animals has always been apparent and her artistic interest towards an animal theme strengthened even more after having worked for the Agricultural Training Board and then a local veterinary practice prior to her college experiences.
Working in pastels at present the focus of her work has continued to be animals. Although most of the subjects she paints are from herds or flocks she is interested in the particular animals that form the groups. Hopefully, inviting the viewer in to look again to see more of the individual.
