Born in Lausanne in 1969. Véronique has always been a creative person, but the urge to paint became vital when she discovered oil painting at the age of 16. Three years later, she moved to New York City for a year. Away from familiar surroundings and from her cultural background, her own language emerged, her signature as it were, from the deep-seated need to share and to communicate with others. She then started to learn other art forms, taking ceramics classes with Anne Campiche, stone shaping and carving with David D’Ambrosio, metal sculpture with Lewis Hofmann, casting and cement with Yolande Biver and steel engraving with Corinne Rod. From then on, Fire and Metal became a central component of her artistic activity, bringing her moments of fullness, allowing her to blend body and soul into the mastery of matter. Very close to nature, Véronique soaks up the gorgeous landscapes and views that our world has to offer and captures them in her art. As soon as she can, she escapes, goes on a journey and returns, her mind full of the mystery that pervades her work. With renewed passion every day, Véronique plays with light and transcends shadows. In her hands, chiaroscuri, contrasts and textures come alive with a delightful vitality!
