Born in Lázaro Cárdenas, Michoacán, Veronica and her husband, Pat Lee, have resided in Pátzcuaro since 2006 with their two children where they are building their home and studio near the pyramids.

Veronica began her formal study of art at the Houston High School for the Performing Arts while growing up in Texas. Her concentration is high fire glazed ceramics. Her grandfather introduced her to barro (clay) when she was a child. She moved to New York City to study at the Pratt Institute and it was there that the ceramic body captured her interest as an ideal medium to combine form with her love of color. When Veronica isn't playing with clay, she dreams about it.

Her work in traditional forms is influenced by modern techniques. Technically, Veronica does not create folk art, however, she is one of the hundreds of young Mexicans taking their rich heritage and creating new mediums to express their ethnicity and culture thereby giving her art a new and unique look. She is highly influenced by the history and architecture of the pyramids in Michoacán near where she lives.

Each year Veronica creates approximately 200 pieces, each one lovingly formed and painted. She is avidly collected by admirers all over the world. She has expanded her venue to include wall hung ceramic boxes that contain both political and personal statements.
