Veron Ennis is an abstract painter and sculptor born just outside of Washington D.C. in Virginia. A devout woman of faith, she is driven to universally communicate through the open freedom that painting allows, addressing the need for uplift and peace in a chaotic, uncontrollable world.
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 compositions and further explores uplifting communication through her three-dimensional cube sculptures.
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 at some of Southwest Florida’s top galleries and museums, including solo and group shows in Fort Myers, Sanibel, Naples, and Cape Coral. She is found in private collections around the world.
Ennis is represented by MAC Fine Art in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, HW Gallery in Naples, Florida and at Von Fraunberg Art Gallery in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Ennis has additionally been a consultant helping artists with career management and encouragement. Ennis has been the curator and director of two spaces, Ferrari Gallery of Cape Coral and UNIT A of Fort Myers, Florida. Additionally, Ennis has been an arts journalist and critic, writing for such publications as Art Districts magazine, Times of the Islands, RSW Living, Bonita & Estero, Gulf & Main, and Gulfshore Life magazines.
Ennis is one of the founders of the art movement, OPT (Open Positive Transference). She is dedicated to creating art of excellent craftsmanship that inspires progress towards an improved reality through the art viewing experience. “Communicating through art is no less serious than work of any other nature, in fact, it is essential,” explains Ennis.
Also a founding member of MAMA (Movement of Aleatoric Modern Artists), part of Ennis’ technique depends on the chance application of her medium. “Falling in and out of control of the work energizes the composition and pushes compositional boundaries,” says Ennis.
Growing up in Virginia, outside of Washington, D.C. provided Ennis with frequent access to the Capital’s museums, and cultural establishments. A graduate of Virginia Tech University, studying graphic design and art history, she established her foundation as an artist. She developed her vision and voice, theories and techniques, and is a modern and contemporary artist of today.
