About the artist
Veronika grew up at the foothills of the Bavarian Alps - a majestic and awe inspiring landscape of mountains, lakes and moors. Although she loves her home country, she always enjoyed travelling and experiencing other countries and cultures. In 2007 she left Germany for New Zealand, met her husband and settled on the East Coast/ Tairawhiti in the small seaside town of Okitu, just outside of Gisborne.
Her Art is deeply inspired by the pacific ocean and its moods and lights, which she captures in her seascapes with oil and acrylic paints on various media.
"There is something about the sea - it creates creativity. I am fortunate to live at the beach and wake up with the sun rising over the ocean. Its ever changing beauty inspires me to pick up the paintbrush and create."
