Veronica de Voogt

 

Veronica de Voogt  (1955) has already had a passion for wildlife all her life. Most of her sculptures are inspired by movement and stature of the animal in its natural habitat.

The animal lives! Dynamics is the key in her work, when she creates a sculpture it must look lively, playful with some tension and a real character.

In her work she puts emotion. Every new artwork is a new discovery of the possibilities the bronze metal offers. To optimize this process Veronica was educated in all the stages of making a bronze statue. She masters all stages after creation of the original wax  or clay model. Making the moulds, poring the wax models and re-structuring them, after casting embossing  the raw casts, welding, patination and even cutting and the stone under the statue and mounting it.

Later in her career, she started with portrait creation. Sculptures on assignment.
