'Brought up in beautiful countryside, I only ever wanted to be a painter and poet from a very young age. I found school got in the way of my studies as a prodigious reader and painter. I had some great art teachers who encouraged me and my family were highly supportive. So I painted and made things. I just didn't see why I should ever stop. Now I encourage and support others to do the same. Painting, writing and the making of artefacts are a primary human medicine and should be taught at all levels.'
Veronica lives and works in a beautiful part of the North Downs where she can see and visit her beloved hillsides and forests.
