Living and working in Dublin, Vera has exhibited widely both in Ireland and abroad. This year, Vera was awarded the Hennessy Craig Scholarship at the RHA Annual Exhibition and received several Arts Council Bursary Awards, the K+M Evans Award (RHA Annual) and the Emerging Visual Artist Award (Wexford Arts Centre). Some of her recent solo exhibitions include the LAB and the RHA (Dublin), QSS Gallery (Belfast), the Butler Gallery (Kilkenny) and Wexford Arts Centre. Vera is currently working towards a solo exhibition in the Molesworth Gallery in 2016.  

The Hennessy Portrait Prize was launched in March 2014. Open to artists in all disciplines, the aim of the competition is to showcase and encourage interest in contemporary portraiture, and to raise the profile of the National Portrait Collection at the National Gallery of Ireland.
