Sweet Paper is pleased to introduce you to Veronica Moody Anderson, the talented artist behind the hand painted keepsake boxes and bottle cap magnets now available at the shop.
SP: What inspires your work?
Veronica: Nature and the city, and everything in between. I love supporting current artists and exploring in my art books, magazines, and museum books from around the world.
SP: When you are not painting, what’s your favorite thing to do?
Veronica: I enjoy being outside; I have a garden I tend to. I love to hike, explore new paths, and GeoCache.
SP: What is your favorite project you’ve done?
Veronica: A mural for Kiefer Southerland
SP: What gave you the idea to re-purpose bottle caps as magnets?
Veronica: It is not a new idea by any means. Most bottle cap magnets are made with Epoxy Glue, mine are kid friendly in the making with Tacky Glue. This project was a hit at Art Camp at CSUF!
