She studied cello at the Esposende Music School and later Communication Design at the Escola Artística Soares dos Reis, in Porto. Her work spans painting, drawing, collage, and photography, in a search for rare encounters between words and forms, crossing different languages that blend in one place and represent the everyday and, at the same time, step away from it.

Vera Mota (Porto, 1982) is an artist whose practice is rooted in performance, sculpture, drawing and installation. Her work is identified with minimalist principles, containing common traits that point to a conflict between a quest for order and a simultaneous fascination with the possibilities of error and accident. Vera Mota grants particular attention to the economy of presence, to effort and action, seeking thus to create new spaces for objects through composition. Her practice often questions the conflicting conditions that govern the relationships of verticality and horizontality. This junction functions as a stimuli for the act of performance. The works of Vera Mota have been featured in several solo and group exhibitions, both in Portugal and abroad.
