I was extremely touched having been sent a photo of my friends Wedding gift up on their wall! In their words ‘Veronica’s Art Wall’….a wall with not only the wedding portrait up but my handmade greeting cards in frames:
A finished series: ‘Vintage Dolls’ … simply back to the source of my muse…the Doll!
Now for scanning and framing!
Acrylic, emulsion, gesso, ink and collage on paper.
Here’s a clearer image of the painting which I created for my lovely friends’ wedding:
I’m taking commissions for portraits and gifts, why not one to me to create a unique Artwork for that special event: e.g: christening, wedding, anniversary, birthday, wedding, engagement etc.
Just let me know what you’re after and I’ll create something magical and unique, perfect for that special recipient.
I went to the wedding party of two dear friends last night, I was there on the night they met……nine years ago! so I wanted to give them something special:

I’ve been using collage onto certain pieces and they’re becoming rather surreal……documented the development below:
I was thrilled at being approched by the inspirational Art Magazine CreativPaper for a feature on my Art work
Do have a look, this magazine is great!
The ‘Stress Busting Colouring’ workshops at CGP Gallery (every Friday of Summer 11-4 pm) are going fantastically, often with the same participants coming back weekly…and the wallpaper is looking AMAZING….i love how every adult and child add something completely new to this Artwork:
I’m also going to be holding a workshop with the painted wallpaper at Free Space Gallery (Kentish Town Health Centre) on Thursday 21st August 2014 (6-9 pm) to raise awareness & funds for Breast Cancer Care & Beating Bowel Cancer:
please come along and get involved…it’s for a great cause and as I’m always told ‘hugely therapeutic’:
