Laura: How did your journey start as an artist?
Verity: My family have always been quite creative in their hobbies; my dad is a talented drawer and painter; my brother sculpts and is interested in fine art whilst my mum is into every craft imaginable! I think through trial and error I found where my strengths and talents lie. I started painting and drawing in my free time and created pieces that I wanted but couldn’t find on the market then I started getting more and more compliments and commissions.
L: How would you describe/explain your work/pieces?
V: They are simple line drawings that are expressive, elegant and timeless.
L: What’s important to you?
V: I think art should create something from nothing. The beauty lies in how the subject feels about the piece, losing and finding yourself at the same time. It should be cohesive with its environment but be able to stand alone and above all stir up emotions.
L: What are you working on at the moment?
V: I am working on more neutral palette line drawings on linen canvas backgrounds. I would like to explore more themes, textures and colours with the line drawings. I have also started lino printing with an emphasis on confectionary items and drinks – watch this space!
