Growing up in the Czech Republic Veronika’s love of nature began when she helped her Grandpa at his garden center. It was her favourite place to be and from a young age could be found following her Grandpa around as he attended to the many plants, trees, shrubs and the orchard where sheep grazed.
Now living in the New Forest, Veronika loves nothing more than foraging as she walks her dogs in the beautiful countryside. Returning with an abundance of nature’s hidden treasures, perfect for creating her everyday useful items, each one unique.
Inspired by nature I love to create items that bring nature in to the home. Items include coffee tables, trays, coasters, kitchen roll and key holders and for decoration my hearts make the perfect accessories for around the home.
Some of my items incorporate up-cycled materials. I use epoxy resin, one of which is heat resistance up to 90 degrees for the coasters and trays. As well as petals, feathers, pebbles, the grain of the wood and a many other natural materials, different colours of opaque pigment are used to create my designs and each one is unique.
A selection of my items can be seen below. The full range can be regularly seen at Salisbury Arts Scene's outdoor events.
