Carly Veronica grew up in the Sierra Nevada forest of Northern California, an area cocooned by lakes and trees. She began creating art at an early age and was fortunate enough to attend several summer programs for young artists. In high school she attended an art boarding school. It was then that Veronica began to explore many different types of art making including printmaking, photography and sculpture.
At the age of 18 she moved to Los Angeles to purse a career in animation and in turn graduated from California Institute of Arts in 2009 with a BFA in character animation. After graduating from CalArts, Veronica’s energies have been mainly directed at animation, however she is now focused on exploring the creative concepts and abstract feelings that had always been with her.
