Born in Virginia, 1981
Works in Historic Downtown Leesburg, VA
VERON ENNIS was born and raised just outside of Washington D.C., in Virginia. A devout woman of faith, she is inspired to communicate the need for uplift and peace in her chaotic, uncontrollable world through the freedom and universality that fine art allows. Her technique marries precision painting and drawing with improvised and spontaneous applications of paint. She employs sophisticated use of dramatic color and geometry in her painted compositions and further explores the message of peace through her idea of structure represented by transformative three-dimensional cube sculptures.
ABOUT HER WORK, Ennis states, “Throughout the ages, ideas have been communicated through symbols; their shape, color, size, and order. I have a love for this universality of communication and structured expression. In modern art, I love the paring down of elements in a composition in order to deliver a message in a concise, intentional, and perhaps minimal way. I create my work using a unique code comprised of symbolic elements that are combined with careful intention to communicate the beauty, the infinite love, and the wonder of this life we all share.”
Ennis’ work has been published in British Vogue, Art Districts, Portfolio, House of Coco, and numerous other publications. She has exhibited her works in London, New York, and Miami and throughout Southwest Florida where she lived for 13 years. She is found in private collections around the world.
Ennis’s work is influenced by artists such as Agnes Martin, Robert Motherwell, Helen Frankenthaler, Barnett Newman, and Corita Kent. She is a graduate of Virginia Tech University, with a degree in graphic design. She has been a curator at two galleries, has been on exhibition committees, independently curated at universities, galleries, and art centers, dedicated time to host art talks at her studio, and written for several art magazines.
