Slovakian artist, Veronika Otepková proves that digital photography can be both innovative and classically beautiful. Her images are inspired by historical events, poetry and renaissance paintings. Despite her traditional inclinations she is undaunted by the possibilities of digital manipulation. Her use of textures and tonal mapping creates an oil paint surface on which to create her images. Veronika has exhibited extensively in Slovakia and in 2012was recognised by the Center of Photographic Art in New York.
