About Veronica

Currently an art student at the Maine College of Art majoring in Illustration, graduating in May 2018. 

I've grown up with animals all my life. I was the child who brought home sick or injured critters and raised them back to health. When I was three years old I was bitten by a large dog and acquired over 100 stitches in my face. Ever since this event I have never stopped loving dogs and grew up with my grandmother's five show golden retrievers. Now I own my own dogs and they are often my subjects in my illustrations along with my other animals. They are my muse and inspire my work.
