VERONIKA HART | Painting
I was born and raised on an isolated farm without electricity or indoor plumbing in Tanzania. From early childhood years to the present, drawing and painting have been my passions. I attended Art College in Germany, immigrated to the USA and New York.
Living in NY, I worked as a commercial artist and was a member of the Society of Illustrators. In 2007 I moved to Hendersonville, NC.
My interpretations stem from a childhood shaped by my European heritage and African lore. I explore parallels and contradictions, melding and overlapping man and beast, contemplating diagonals, movement, and light. Recent work focuses on today’s challenges while celebrating the beauty of our shared humanity.
I have a BFA and have studied at the Art Student League of NYC under realist painter Peter Cox from 1991 -1994. I have sketched on camera for film director Neil Jordan. Over the years I have won several “Best in Show” awards plus 12 distinctions and have been featured in numerous publications.
