In 1993 Verner staged his first solo exhibition in a local hotel and began painting full time. He was awarded a L.E.D.U. Artrepreneur award in 1995 and since then has not looked back. Over the past years Verner's reputation as a successful artist has grown, he has had a number of sell out exhibitions and has steadily increased in popularity among critics and collectors.
He travels on his motorbike North and South of Ireland to photograph the landscape for his painting's, returning to spend many hour's in his studio working on them in his unique way. A traditional landscape painter with a modern twist, Verner has created a style that can truly be called his own. The scenes are built up in layers, first painted with brushes then reworked with a flat plastic card this process is used through each painting whether landscape or still life, creating a balance between colour, line and structure.
