Veronica has a bachelor degree of material based art in Khio from 2019. Her medium is art jewelry and installation. She is interested in everydays organic materials, and their implication of ephemerality and the concept of constant transformation of organic matter.
Rice, flour & charcoal are often used, & themes like personal identity and cultural experiences are explored through the materials. In her current works, Veronica started to play with the ideas of individualism, deep time, & free will in her theme.
Veronica grew up in Hong Kong. She studied and worked in the United States before settling down in Norway.
