BIO | Q & A
Art is a means of communication. It speaks in ways and expresses ideas and insights that are harder to express verbally. Webster's caretakers have helped her explore the mixing of paint colors, working with glue, ripped paper, and collages. The freedom to create, to make a mess, and share her bright and bold personality comes through in Vea's artwork. We get a glimpse into that creative soul and see her ideas come to life as we watch her put all the pieces of her work together step-by-step. It makes her very proud and she enjoys the process of creating as much as the big vibrant finished pieces.
Somedays, Vera reaches for bold colors, other days for blurry - light blue is her favorite color. Patterns emerge and project takeaway signs of boredom and routine. Art is calming!
Vera's artwork has been shared on Mosaic greeting cards and will keep showing up and be supported in her efforts now that she has had the opportunity to share her work with others.
