“Let the beauty of what you love be what you do”
Veronica Hodges (born 1972) is passioned about art and life. She creates papercut works of art, large scale paper installation, scenography and fashion items. Her inspiration stems from nature’s beauty, existentialists themes and an ever-present curiosity towards the lifecycle of all things living and dying. Her goal is to display new layers of meaning through the exploration of the intersection between her installations, space and reception.
Throughout the years, she has entered into artistically and commercially successful collaborations with art and culture institutions as well as businesses, boutiques and shopping malls.
Veronica Hodges holds a degree in fashion design and scenography, obtained in 2002, and has worked in the film industry before committing completely to her present artistic practice.
