Veronica Guest lives and works in the Wye Valley, by the Welsh/English border. She is a sheep farmer, breeding black mountain sheep as well as Anglo-Nubian goats whose kids she exports across the world. Her work as an artist is informed by her deep knowledge and love of the land she farms and the surrounding area, and her curiosity about the natural forms that shape it.
Influences on Veronica’s work are various, and always filtered through the lens of her own imagination. They range from the art of native Americans of the north west coast (where she lived for a number of years), to Japanese woodblocks and prints. In recent years Veronica has become fascinated by the print-making techniques of Rembrandt, and his use of black and light. Though her work is never an attempt to imitate, the inspiration she takes from the diverse sources around her and the art she admires produces in her work an extraordinary sense of the depth and riches of the everyday world, and an exceptional attention to detail which rewards careful scrutiny.
A sample of Veronica's latest works are shown on this website. Giclee prints are available of certain pieces, including the picture of Hay on Wye shown here.
