“In my life I have always been fascinated by forms and colours, but in the past I was not aware of the harmony in the background. From 1989 my activities were focused on the fashion industry as a fashion designer, this was followed by interior design. After fifteen years, I desired something new, unknown, so not only did I give up my enterprise, I left everything behind myself. This was the beginning of a rough path, as I was on a mission of spiritual development and search for reality. After a long time, I realized that the difficult and never ending pathing of self-exploration with many changes. So I gave up searching and stopped. To my great surprise, it was at this point that everything I had been searching for up to that time revealed itself to me. In the harmony that connects colours and forms I recognized myself, and by now it has become clear to me that I only need to let reality manifest itself through me.

I have been painting since then.

In my life I have always strived for perfection, not realizing that manifestation true to the given moment and to the person cannot be anything else than perfect.”

At the age of eighteen Veronica enrolled at D.A.M.S. from Bologna. In the University, she studies art history and obtains a degree with a thesis in semiotic arts. After graduating, she moved to Venice where she did an internship at the Guggenheim Collection and was able to "breathe" a part of the best European and American art of the 20th century. At the Guggenheim she had the great opportunity to conduct guided tours of the collection and was fascinated by the ability and directness of children to understand contemporary art and more generally to "live" the stories told to them; she decided to dedicate five illustrated stories to the children, in the "Flying Man" collection (Edigio Publishing House, Pavia, published June 2016). In 2017 the second illustrated book "Pelle di Stracci", Apollo Edizioni, was published with which Veronica begins a tour of her books presentations in which she has the opportunity to make herself known as a writer and illutrator especially in the province of Reggio and Parma. Always for Apollo Edizioni she publishes “Il venditore di colori” in 2018.

In recent years Her attention has been focused on the world of illustration. She prefers to work with pencil. Her drawings and artworks are well-defined. She continues to experiment with various pictorial techniques. In Parma she attended the school of humanistic naturopathy and shen trainig "Ego center" and she obtained the master's degree under the guidance of the Taoist teacher and course director Pino Ferroni who contributed, with his teachings, to direct the search for 'artist on the essentiality of the story, on the many possibilities of the heart to evolve, both through the renewed artistic instrument. D' Onofrio Veronica teaches art and image in the province of Reggio Emila and carries out monographic workshops of creative illustration in some schools and associations. she is also a socio-cultural animator and this allows her to use artistic techniques to activate processes for developing the psycho-physical and relational balance of people and user groups and stimulating expressive-manual and ludic-cultural potential.
