Veronique Maria was born in London in 1959 and grew up between New Zealand, Canada, Singapore and the U.K. Working in the arts since the 1970s, today she works as an artist, artist’s mentor and creativity coach from her home in the West Sussex countryside.
Throughout her prolific 40-plus year career, her work to date has utilized mixed media, painting, video, audio, sculpture, performance and land art. Her practice draws from her lived experience as a lesbian woman, a devoted mother and grandmother, and committed Buddhist practitioner. An eclectic mix of spirituality from her formative years, (Maori, Native American, Anglican, Catholicism) is also key to her process; ritual and relationships are central concerns and she engages deeply with themes of sexuality, spiritualty and mortality.
Veronique has received funded residencies in Iceland, Ireland and New Mexico USA, won numerous awards and accolades including Grants for the Arts from Arts Council England since 1995, She has also worked with, and been mentored by, significant artists such as Sir Antony Gormley and Professor Danny Rolph.
