Mastrius Master Artist

Evolving over time, #mastriusmaster VERONICA FUNK’s work has become about storytelling—honouring the lives and stories of women through portraiture.

Veronica grew up in Northern Manitoba, deeply influenced by the Cree culture around her and surrounded by women who taught her the beauty and craft of art. “I really don’t remember a time that I haven’t been drawn to the arts.”

Now living in the foothills of the Rockies, Veronica creates visual stories inspired by contemporary street art. Painting professionally for almost 25 years, in the last decade she has amassed a huge body of work comprising significant portrait projects: 52 Weeks, The Grandmothers, Nasty Women, Women’s Work, Heroes, and more.

Her collections are ambitious, but important. They house the stories of women who inspire and encourage others with their honesty, vulnerability, and resilience.

Over the years, Veronica’s work has been featured in numerous art books and magazines, including on the cover of What Women Create, and recognized with a multitude of awards. Many of these awards acknowledge Veronica’s role in developing the artistic and cultural landscape around her. “My focus as an artist has always been to collaborate.”

At Mastrius, she is a generous and intuitive mentor, guiding emerging artists through the ins and outs of creating their own cohesive collections and bodies of work.
