Vera's work explores the relationship between the materiality of a surface and its function as a carrier of paint. Intuitive sequences of process transform a "ground" and blur the boundaries between drawing, sculpture and painting.
Vera studied English and History at Münster University and Fine Art at the Academy of Art in Münster, Germany. She gained an MFA from Bath Spa University. Vera lives in Bristol and has been a lecturer at Bristol School of Art for many years.
