Hi there, I'm Veronika, a fine art photographer and digital artist based in England - in a beautiful county called Herefordshire.
I am completely self-taught, though with a university degree in creative writing and literature. Through my years of reading and analysing, I have acquired a deep love for stories. Although I have many short stories, half a novel and a love of writing under my belt, I realised (before I reached the second half of said novel...!!) that the necessary passion in creating literature was missing in me. Fortunately I found the medium of photography where I'm able to create character and layer each piece with meaning, continuing on that creative but now visual storytelling path. Plenty of passion here!! I feel very lucky to be able to have this outlet where the imagination truly is the limit. Digital manipulation helps me bring my concepts, my fantasies into a finished piece of art.
My work has been described by many as such: mysterious, strange, magical, dark, surreal, creepy, fairy-tale-like, truthful. I'm happy with all these descriptions and induce aspects of this little list of adjectives into everything I create.
My deepest desire is for my work to connect with people; people who can relate; people who need to see my art to awaken a certain feeling at that very moment in their lives. I sincerely hope that feeling will be hope and beauty and a sense of belonging.
