Veronica is dedicated to and understands first-hand, the magic that the arts can offer. She has developed her relationship with them since she was eight years old. Fifteen years ago Veronica moved from the South of England to Melbourne where she continued her studies in art, education, art therapy and now psychology.
Veronica has been a fully qualified therapist for over ten years now and loves every minute of her work. Veronica has experience in working with people of different ages with a variety of needs and expectations. One of the main aspects of this work that is so compelling is the process of developing unique therapeutic relationships that complement each individual and their creative journey.
As an artist, Veronica’s main skill lies in drawing. Veronica likes to push the boundaries of what a drawing is and what a drawing looks like. Some of her favourite topics include discovering and magnifying details found in nature, surrealist ideas and developing characters for children’s picture books. Veronica enjoys time with her dog, Timber, and being in nature. Watching her play and teaching her new commands brings her great joy.
In addition, Veronica loves boxing and is a volunteer coach at a local not for profit gym. Working alongside people of all ages and watching the growth in their discipline, respect and dedication to boxing, the gym, others and most importantly themselves is a magic process.
