Born in St Petersburg, Russia 1974, Printmaker Veta Gorner now lives and works in London. After receiving her MA in Industrial Design and Architecture, Veta moved from Russia to England where she studied Printmaking at Morley College in 2002. Shortly after she was elected Member of Greenwich Printmakers Association, and has since exhibited in London, Newcastle, Edinburgh, Amsterdam and Helsinki. Veta’s style combines the art of traditional etching with the dimensional qualities of highly embossed paper. With an express interest in the nature of motion and it’s dialogue with space, she creates images that are both vulnerable and strong. In 2004 she was awarded The University of Wales Prize and in 2009 claimed The John Purcell Award at The Originals, and The Birgit Skiold Memorial Trust Award.
