Veronica grew up in northern New Jersey and has been working with clay since 1996. While her introduction to ceramics started as an elective course she took in high school, she quickly enriched her studies by taking ceramic art courses at local studios. Veronica holds a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from New York University, where she studied under Steven Montgomery. After graduation, Veronica began teaching ceramics classes at the 92nd St. Y and the Jewish Community Center of Manhattan. Veronica returned to NYU for graduate school receiving a Master of Arts in Art Education. She taught ceramics at Trevor Day School from 2005-2014. Her continued clay studies include workshops with Hayne Bayless at The Art School at Old Church and Luca Tripaldi at La Meridiana in Italy. She participated in the artist residency N.E.W. (Nature Eight Ways) at Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts in Maine. In 2012, Veronica was selected to represent Rotary International’s New York City district #7230 on a Group Study Exchange Program in the Puglia and Basilicata regions of Italy. Her extensive international travels have led her to ceramic studios throughout the world, influencing her perspective and knowledge of ceramic techniques and associated clay cultures. She has held various art education positions including: Craft Specialist at Stone Barns (Pocantico Hills, NY), Ceramics Director at Camp Mohawk (White Plains, NY), and Ceramics instructor at the Clay Art Center (Port Chester, NY).
