Veronika Lavey is an artist specialising in conceptual imagery and self-portraiture through fine art photography.
While earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in 2013 with a focus on creative writing and literature she acquired a love for stories, which she later nurtured and focused into her distinctive artistic imagination.
She is recognised for her dark, thought-provoking self-portraits, which are exhibited and publicised to fulfil her mission of illuminating strength and resilience in hardship through shared emotional experiences,.
Holding up a metaphorical mirror to show the darker places in life, Veronika reminds us to cultivate empathy for ourselves and others, because ultimately we are all navigating through the same deep-rooted stories of joy, pain, hope and sorrow.
Originally from Hungary, Veronika grew up in Los Angeles and Auckland, New Zealand before settling in the United Kingdom. She is now based in Herefordshire with her husband and two children.
