Veda is a New Zealand water researcher, public speaker, mother, artist and author. She has dedicated the last 8 years to observing and photographing the life of water. Her primary area of focus is photographing water in its ‘state of creation,’ the space between liquid and ice. It is through her remarkable crystallographic photos that water reveals its awareness of not only Creation, but thought and intention through imagery. Tainui Maori (the great canoe builders of New Zealand) on her father’s side, she was born with a passion for water. She believes that water is fluid intelligence, observing itself through every living organism on the planet and in the Universe. Veda sees water as Source rather than a resource, and considers all bodies of water to be sacred. She especially loves to reconnect children to the living water systems inside and outside of their bodies, believing that the ‘tamariki' (children) are the water bearers of the future.
