Veronica Funk was born on June 25, 1966 in Winnipeg and raised in Northern Manitoba. She studied art & design at Red Deer College in Alberta, apprenticed with potters, stone sculptors and painters in Manitoba and spent a year painting on a farm in Saskatchewan. She is an active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and resides in Airdrie. Alberta.
She has been painting professionally since 1999 and is currently continuing her education towards completion of her Bachelor of Fine Arts designation.
Despite forays into mixed media, altered books and pottery, she has always returned to the medium that got her career started: painting. Over the years she has been the subject of numerous newspaper articles and her work has been published in a number of art books. She has also taken up writing.
Her goal is to create a visual story. She combines symbols, imagery and vibrant color through the use of opaque and transparent acrylic glazes, stamping, utilizing her hands as tools and drawing with her brush. Her images are an endeavor to capture the essence of Canada.
