late founder of the Mc Closky Institute of Voice, as the first student in the program he created
at the Boston Conservatory. She graduated in 1990 with a MM in Vocal Pedagogy/Voice Therapy,
intending to use her expertise to help children with asthma and learning disabilities. After her
inspiring teacher passed, she continued studying with his wife, Barbara McClosky. Véronique is now a member of the Institute and certified as a CMVT.

Véronique was invited to represent the New Bostonians visual arts community at Boston City Hall.
In 2014 a selection of her paintings and poems were featured at the Boston City Hall Mezzanine during the month of February. She was selected as one of the twenty winners of the Boston Mayor’s Poetry Program for her poem “Hug, Ten Times Fold”, which has been on display by the South elevator on
the 9th floor of Boston City Hall.
Since her publication of “Moon Fever”, a compilation of thoughts, short stories, and poems including
lyrics to original songs, she has given multi-media performances featuring her paintings and her book: Grove Hall Library, Susan Bailis ALC, Dudley Library, her own Plume de Fleur Artist Gallery… Her visual work has been featured at the Sanctuary Restaurant (J.P.) and continuously for the past year at the Pho & I Restaurant, a few steps up from Boston Symphony Hall on Huntington Avenue.
Véronique was interviewed live and featured in poetry, visual art, song and dance on BNN-TV.
Her original song “Spirit” can be found on You Tube. She has taught voice and conducted vocal healing sessions privately, done art/singing sessions with special need children, and as a language teacher has incorporated creative/visual work to her teaching and choreographed original songs written for/with children. Véronique writes in several languages and sings classical and jazz as well as spiritual songs. She draws inspiration from her desire to contribute to a world where all children can blossom harmoniously. Her artistic expression is one that addresses all cultures, all faiths, with a message that has been consistent since she was twelve years old: Peace.
