Veronica Aimone – Veronica’s lifelong transformations inspire her to create art. Continuously changing her own life, from banker to teacher, surveyor and fisherman to the high tech industry and artist, she wants to take her emotions, an object, or a captured moment and feel it ‘materially’ transform. She is strongly attracted to the sensuality of materials, to understanding their personalities, to the surprises they reveal and how by working with their natures, they challenge the way she thinks about representing her own life and society and the culture of our current lives. She draws to capture her moments in the everyday, her travels through Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and India. Her art is inspired by Betty Goodwin, Amadeo Modigliani and Alberto Giacometti.
