ABOUT

VEDA HALLOWES

Veda’s work is ultimately about fertility and regeneration. Her goal is to make thoughtful works of beauty, which enhance the viewers’ perspective.

Veda came to sculpture after a successful career in other fields. Her main body of work is in bronze, based on organic shapes and the natural world of fruits, seeds, birds and butterflies.

Her fruits are a metaphor for the female figure with a sensual, subtle, twist and humour. The patinas are rich and individual.

The object of Veda’s ‘spill pieces’ is to engage the imagination – for the viewer to become creator, and delight in the impossible and fantastical.

Commissions are undertaken.
