Vera Evseeva is a young wildlife artist working mostly with the soft pastel, in the genre of photorealism. Vera was born on September 12, 1988, in the city of Saratov. At a young age, she moved to Moscow, where she lives and works to this day.
She studied in an Academic School or Arts in Moscow and decided not to stop there – she regularly improves her qualifications by studying with the best Russian and foreign masters of pastel and animal painting, such as Julia Dubinina, Elena Tatkina, Eric Wilson, Jason Morgan, Svetlana Cameron, etc.
Vera is a member of the National Pastel Society of Russia (IAPS member), a member of the Wildlife Artist Society International, Great Britain (TWASI), an associate member of the Society of Graphic Artists, Great Britain.
She thinks that the main power of a wildlife artist is the ability to observe, hear, and feel nature and its inhabitants. That is why all her paintings are so realistic and extremely detailed, but at the same time full of life and character. Vera is also an eco-activist and wildlife conservationist.
Vera participated in different international exhibitions and competitions; her works are often highly praised by judges. In the early stages of her career, Vera won first place in the international competition “Golden Turtle festival” in the category “Graphics – portrait of an animal” in 2018. And later she won third place in the category ”Art – animal portrait” in 2020.
The artist’s works are in private collections in the USA, Europe, Great Britain, and Russia. Vera also often takes commissions for animal portraits.
