Vera Hilger (born 1971) is a German painter.

Life and work[edit]

Vera Hilger was born in Schleiden, Germany,

After completing her studies in the Netherlands she moved into her main studio in the Belgian town Verviers, and a second studio at Cologne was retained.
Her paintings mostly focused the characteristic east Belgian landscape. The works did not reflect a realistic image, but they were deeply involved with the atmosphere of the landscapes.
From 2009, her paintings changed more and more by combining rhythmic elements and patterns with the depth in the picture plane and opened the way towards the now exclusively abstract painting.

Vera Hilger lives and works in Hauset/Belgium and Cologne/Germany.
