Vera Rerichova

Věra’s artwork covers a wide range of styles from statues to paintings to handcrafted frames. She constantly seeks new means to express feelings, moods, and perceptions through her hands which can spontaneously take something plain and simple and form it into touchable artistic objects.

Her handcrafted and painted frames are themselves extraordinary works of art. They compliment and work with the painting, its continuation, and at the same time its definition.

Together they become one inseparable whole piece of artwork. It is a window through which the soul can be seen.
