Veronica is a visual artist raised in several American cities. She illustrates life as an American, in all its varied splendor. Drawing on pop culture icons, sports, heroes and villains, and more, she draws our complex world into focus. Her Memorial Drawings, an ongoing series of illustrations complemented with text, honor the many people who have influenced our collective culture and reflect on loss and mourning. Her work also explores identity and the ways we hide and reveal elements of our personalities. Her work has been shown in galleries in San Francisco, Berkeley, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. She has a BFA from San Francisco Art Institute and an MFA from UC Berkeley. Recently, she was the Head Arts Facilitator and Gallery Manager at UCPLA Washington Reid Gallery where she worked together with artists, staff and community to build exhibitions, curriculum to create more public dialogue around place, space and identity. She has also worked with Liberate Collective offering a Youth Justice Art Workshop Series in LA, as well as doing projects with Boys and Girls Club and Mercy Housing in San Francisco for ReImagine week, a creative project surrounding loss and dying, offering more dialogue and more community support.
