Artist Bio

Vera Gierke is an artist who grew up in New Jersey, has lived in Michigan, Indiana, and Rhode Island, and seasonally on Nantucket. Living in Rhode Island, she engaged in a range of Continuing Education classes at the Rhode Island School of Design and worked with a few local artists. From having taken a variety of classes, Vera expanded her vision and found that the various areas of art interrelate, support, and broaden each other. She joined the Providence Art Club where she explored a variety of art classes: acrylic, oil, watercolor, drawing, printmaking, photography, photoshop, and collage. Through these classes, Vera discovered a fascination with paper collages and has made them her favorite form of art. Her work is not abstract, rather she looks for a way to make an image or object different than what is expected, to add interest through the material used for the collage.
