“Wherever you are, and what ever you do, be in love.” Rumi
“My art work is born out of my spiritual practice. I create specifically with the hope and intention that what I express will bring to others, something of the essence of the place it is born from. My aspiration is that it is born out of a place of humble surrender to something far greater than myself. I endeavour to hand over my heart, in order to be in service of a ‘higher power’. Some people might call that giving myself to ‘God’. As a Buddhist I’m more likely to describe it as surrendering myself to ‘Great Spirit’ or ‘Source’ or quite simply ‘Love’, (universal and eternal love).
In the process of making the painting (or drawing, sculpture, film, performance or what ever it happens to be) I ask that that which needs to come through me, be manifested. I do this from a place of open hearted intention and deep trust. It’s a sort of prayer; a meditation with attention towards the good of all (beings). I believe that what comes through me is, at the level of service, none of my business, so my focus needs to be around practicing of non attachment. I endeavour to remind myself that it is a gift coming through me which is not really ‘mine’. And I try to keep my ego (with all its’ inner voices), out of the way, best that I can.“ Veronique Maria (August 2020)
Conversations between ‘artist and audience’ 1973 – 2020
Foreword: It’s not meant to be pretty – it’s a process. It’s not meant to be finished – it’s forever changing. The point is to be ‘in it’; sometimes immersed, sometimes engaged and sometimes grappling… Always being with exactly what is there, no attachment to an outcome, no desire for a product, just present to the process, connected and dancing in the unknown. ….surrendered, connected and open…

‘I have known Veronique’s work since 2004 and have been struck by its range and depth, in relation to both a fearless exploration of media and a commitment to a developing personal vision. Veronique’s is a searching practice, through which she seeks to explore and express to others her profound feeling of connection to environment and an overarching sense of the numinous in daily life. These preoccupations have led her to ask fundamental questions about the boundaries and locations of art, through actions and objects. In Veronique’s practice, the world is also the body and the land is also a shrine. I feel that she has a great deal to offer. She has my highest recommendation.’ Simon Grennan (Artist, Mentor, Manchester, UK)
2017-2020 – Design and Build
2018 – Intimacy and Communion
‘I have met many visual artists during my time as Director of The Ark and recognize that Veronique has something special.’
Eina McHugh (Director Lárionad Cultúir na Leanaí Dublin, Ireland)
2016 – 2018 ‘Gratitude Mandalas’
“Wonderful. It’s all there….” Sir Antony Gormley (artist, UK)
“I have just read RAW and it was beautiful and inspiring and alive and RAW. It made me cry but cry for so many different reasons, feelings and ghosts in my soul. You are an amazing woman and thank you for sharing that. What courage and honesty.” Helen Willoughby, East Sussex
2015 ‘I cannot help how my heart feels’
‘I so enjoyed ‘I cannot help how my hear feels’. I LOVED the movement through the grasses – I was so absorbed I almost stopped breathing! And the beautiful repetition. The water/bubbles literally took my breath away and felt as If I was drowning! Took me time to balance myself. Then the repetition and the beautiful flower gave me hope… and then the calm then end. So I FELT it. I felt pain and love.. and hope. It took me back years to a poem I had written’ Freya (Artist, Teacher UK)
‘Congratulations on your video ‘I cannot help what my heart feels’. It is wonderful and very resonant of the compassion practices I am doing at the moment for an Msc in Mindfulness and Compassion. The pace of the repeating images was just perfect and I resonated so much with the overlaying and repetition as well as the simple observation of the beauty both observed externally at the same time as being experienced within.’ Barbara B (Teacher, artist, author, lecturer UK)
“Your film ‘I cannot help what my heart feels’ reminded me of a couple of things…‘One of Those Days In England’ a song from the seventies..
‘One of those days in England with a sword in every pond And birds in every garden in the land One of those days in England when the passion never ends A slowly moving season by the fire of my friends.’ The other was a day I spent with a girlfriend lying by the river Chess in the English sun. All I could hear was the water, the insects and her breathing.’ It’s 4.30am I’ve watched it twice and I want to lie in a field and stare at the clouds.” Robert H (Music Video Artist, Australia)
2014-15 ‘Stay’ and ‘Leaning In’
2013 ‘This is It’ and ‘Everything is Here’
‘Veronique, your artwork is the nicest thing in our house. It is talked about by everyone who comes in. It just is so peaceful and makes me feel happy. Thank you SO much.’ Claire Curran (PR and Events Planner, UK)
‘You must know the complements from the canvas that my parents have at home is unreal. I have not walked into the house without a friend who hasn’t seen it and complemented it!!!‘ Gracie Curran (Entertainment Management UK)
2013 – Moving Practice ‘Climping’
2013 ‘Moving Practice – Rituals’ Fabrica Residency
2013 ‘On the Edge of Land and Knowing‘
2009-2012 – ‘Orogeny’ Project
‘Great use of material and I like that you really get your body into the process and aren’t afraid to get down and dirty.’ Ross Bleckner (Artist USA) in response to video Orogeny
‘Veronique’s practice as an artist has blossomed and matured. Exciting collaborations and residences in Iceland have imbued herwork with a sense of elemental, suppressed force. There is a sense of geothermal devastation mixed with the creeping rebirth of lichens and flora in this work.’ Belinda Holden (artists mentor and consultant, UK)
2009 – 2010 ‘My Garden In A Bucket for You’
2007-2008 ‘Vanita Vanitas’
‘I am fascinated by the Vanita and the depth and power of your work.’
Dinah Lawson (accountant, esoteric healer, educator UK)
“I have been aware of Veronique’s work for a few years and have just recently started to look at her videos and paintings more closely. The Vanitas video series resonate with me and bring back my own memories of favourite times when I feel most at ease and at peace with the world. Walking in the countryside or having breakfast in the garden, in the morning, when the birds are singing. These are the times when I feel glad to be alive, feel hopeful and full of expectation in life and have time to reflect. The Vanitas videos evoke these feelings. The sound is very important and I can identify with what Veronique says about life and the breath of the earth. The sounds make a connection with the lightness or sometimes heaviness of air and what you hear when you are on your own in these places. I am drawn to Veroniques ideas, her commitment to her work and continuous rich immersive practise. In her painting Veronique seems to capture similar qualities and through mark making and layering textural media and colour she creates places and imagery for contemplation.” Amanda Duke (Artist, Educator, UK)
‘Thank you for articulating so well some of my deepest instincts’. GP (Artist, Curator, Gallery Owner, London UK) in response to video Rituals.
2007 ‘Thirty Years’
“Veronique – You are so brave to put yourself out in the public domain and to share your innermost thoughts and feelings as you did with RAW. It is at times of adversity and sorrow that we find ourselves to be at our most creative and strong. As long as you keep that channel open, the grief has to go somewhere and where better than to transform it into a beautiful work of art. I was touched by your poem, it reminds me of what I am not and what I aspire to be once again. x” KD Visual Artist, Norfolk/Suffolk UK
2004 – 2007 ‘Process’
‘Veronique’s work arouses and confounds the viewers expectations in equal measure. Beauty and intrigue are apparent in the large canvases and smaller works. These are emotive works that conjure up mysteries both physical and metaphysical. I’ve been impressed by her development as a painter. Her confidence in handling materials and new found compositional awareness is allowing her to communicate her deep felt passions, relating to thoughts and a real sense of place. A journey is unfolding that will test viewers preconceptions and take Painting another step forward.’ Prof. Danny Rolph (Artist – MA (Painting) RCA and artists mentor, London UK)
‘…the most sensual , erotic and beautiful pieces I’ve seen.’
Allie Carter (Physiotherapist, Management Consultant in Health Care, UK)
‘Your presence and integrity shines through’. Andrew Machon (International Change Management Consultant and Coach, based UK and Spain)
“I was scanning your website on my phone, and thought – I’ve got to see this work on my laptop … I need to see it BIGGER! Veronique your work is incredible. The textures really speak to me. Textured Mandala’s! Good grief I absolutely loved those. The volcano inside/outside. The rebirth. I’m not versed in “Art Speak’ or translating art so won’t try here but to say you are extremely talented.I particularly like your video medium art. Moving Practice .. the sounds really cut into me. Watching all of your videos now – amazing. Thank you! Your art is substantial – watching it made me want to get inside it. I’ve never felt that way about art before. How funny. “The Shuffling … Losing the thing that made sense, in order to find something else!” B R I L L I A N T. Oooofph. Seeing an artist explain their work is revelation. It’s new. I really like how it made me feel.There’s more! Haha … Veronique – I’m watching Moving Painting 2013 now. I felt the most extraordinary auditory effect as you morph edited at 2.41 into the blurred close-up of the flowers in the water. I LOVE auditory effects – It was the wind being picked up, almost a subliminal sound effect. Great! I love the overlaying of images. The sound. It’s fab. I’ve never had such a visceral response when looking at art before.This is cool. I now like art in a way that I never had before. ” Trae Righton (previously TV producer, currently novel writer working on her first book. St Petersburg, Russia.)
‘Fantastique! You have gone to the very center/heart of this thing we now call art. And the reporting of your journey to the center, Your center, is simply exhilarating.’ Peter London. (Artist – Educator USA)
‘As usual, your narrative and way of documenting your work and processes draws us into it, effortlessly…in the midst of other occupations and myriad things that compete for attention, we want to stop and linger in this special space that you create.’ Carolina D. (Dancer/Artist Worthing)
‘Wow, Veronique. You may have had trouble organising your thoughts for writing poetry, but here you have certainly managed to convey the inner turmoil that goes with being both a creative individual and – more prosaically – simply a human being. “Who would I be when I had nothing, made nothing?” That question resonates absolutely with me, and, I’m sure, with anyone who is honest enough to look at their life and strip away the job, the relationships, the house etc.’ Paul P (singer, song writer, writer) London/Brighton UK
“Veronique Maria has a remarkable ability to transform vision and feelings into two and three dimensions. Her large scale paintings are complex, compelling, and have potential to mystify and challenge.” Lorraine O’Reilly (Education Consultant, UK)
2001 ‘Postcards from India’
‘Life Death Sex GOOD!’ Maggie Hambling (Artist UK)
“She’s the real thing. A real artist.” Peter London (Artist, educator and guide USA)
“I am blown away. It is phenomenal!” Beccy LG (Property Sales Consultant and Business Owner, East Sussex. UK)
1998 – 1999 ‘Mound’ Site specific installation Hampshire UK
‘Veronique Maria is a fabulous performance – site specific artist who’s work is very beautiful, accessible and compelling. It is simply terrific and ought to be seen by as wide an audience as possible.’ Peter London (Teacher, artist, author, lecturer, consultant, USA)
“Veronique Maria’s art work is compelling because of the variation. Some of it is like raw, open wounds filled with emotion that makes you take a second look at the naked realism. If I compared it to a voice, it would be like the first time I heard Janis Joplin. I had never heard such vulnerability before. That is how I see her work. Then suddenly she will create a lovely, surreal image. Both are delightful but the dichotomy is fascinating.” Jacqueline Hairgrove (Business Owner – Property Management USA)
‘My dear Veronique , you are simply great. You are fantastic!! Carry on with your creation and message – world needs it so badly. In this world where the wonderful religions divide humanity, this is the level where humanity has arrived……….artists like you are rays of hope ………. carry on. The intensity of inherent (though buried and covered) love love love (like the red hot molten lava in the core of mother earth) in human beings will, one day, surely, explode and bring the great change in our hearts ……….. theology has not progressed at all it seems. All the best…. I love you.’ Baniprosonno (Artist/Painter Himalayas)
“That work (RAW) was amazing. Thank you. I’m so happy I left it until I had time to truly read it and digest. It’s very powerful. You took me from almost laughing at the appearance of the spider to tears within seconds. It was a very clever emotional shake up. It’s a great idea to have the preamble too. All I can say is… You’d better be truly ready to give us the full ROAR… As that is what you are promising us. I’m really excited to see and hear this stuff. I think the world needs you –I think it’s perfect.” Kieron O’Meara, Elecrician, London
‘Your description of the creative process could not have been better said. I loved it. I just woke up and read it and I was filled with joy and admiration. You made my day! I shall revel in your words and revisit your images as the day unfolds. Thank you so much for sharing your heartfelt expression of the creative process.’ Michael Knight (Director Helen Wurlitzer Foundation USA)
‘Bloody hell, Veronique! You’ve done it again. The way you describe this process is awesome, in the old sense. Even as I was reading it, I could hear a song in almost every line. Whenever I try to describe process, it comes out pedestrian, literally step by step, literal. What you describe is the feeling, and it’s so poetic it makes me envious.And the drawing, obviously, lives up to the process. I hope to see them in the flesh sometime.” Paul P (Musician/Writer Brighton UK)
‘This is a most beautiful and inspiring piece of writing.’
JA (PP Practitioner)
‘Stunning! I have loved reading and rereading it.’ Elaine J (CTI Leadership/Co founder of The Beauty Way USA)
1993 – 1998
‘Veronique Maria is a talented, passionate and committed artist and is constantly challenging herself to advance her way of thinking and expressing herself. She has much to offer and her generosity of spirit often seems limitless, especially in relation to her art.’ Samantha Cairns (Business Consultant, Mexico City)
‘Dear Veronique, Fortunately we are on the mailing list for the Horsham Arts Centre so we received your card which so excited us but seeing your exhibition was a really stimulating and rewarding experience for us both. As a creative artist myself (painter turning into a multi media explorer and Ros is a weaver and spinner) one is always hoping to be moved and excited by exhibitions – it so rarely happens. So much art these days seems to be art products. To confront your new awareness of form and sensibilities to materials and experiences of love and joy in creating was….. well…. THANK YOU! ART DOES add to the world! All best John and Ros Hitchens’ (artists Petworth 1994)
1991 – 1992
1979 ‘Window Dressing’
1974 Itchicoo Park (Small Faces 1967)
“Veronique is really searching through her art practice. I mean, all artist’s are searching but Veronique is REALLY searching. “ Janine Antonni (artist USA)
