Vera has had an interest in painting since early childhood. Basically self-taught, her interest increased over the years when joining art groups in Perth, Parry Sound, Bell’s Corners, Ottawa and Burk’s Falls Ontario, areas in which she has lived.
She has taken courses from various instructors and at the Gallery on the Lake, Buckhorn Ontario and Schneider’s School of Fine Art (now Bridgewater Retreat) at Tweed Ontario.
Oil painting is her main interest, although she does enjoy acrylics, watercolors and sketching. The subject she enjoys the most is the scenery in the area she lives.
Having been the recipient of many ‘People’s Choice’ awards, her paintings are in private collections worldwide.
Vera now belongs to the Kawartha Artists’ Gallery and Studio in Peterborough and is with the Outdoor Painter’s Group.
