Vera has been a generous donor to our Markets for Africa for many years. Kingston Grandmother Connection is truly blessed to offer the work of such a well known, accomplished Kingston artist.
Vera Donefer has been an artist for over 60 years and has mastered many different techniques. Beginning as a fashion illustrator in New York City, she moved away from commercial art after arriving in Montreal in 1957. Vera has been a Kingston resident since 1996. Vera has taught many courses and has exhibited in Kingston, nationally and abroad.
With the development of improved hard and fluid acrylics, Vera has been exploring the emotion of colour through abstraction. Her new creations burst with life and are driven by her use of colour.
