Veronika studied at the College of arts in Leningrad and graduated from the college but continued her studies attending the classes in the USSR Academy of Arts. During one of her summer vacations she met Ulian Benoni. They settled in Prague and Veronika painted and sold pictures strongly influenced by old Prague itself with its fascinating streets and architecture. In 1998 Benoni established their school of graphics and painting. Veronika now works on canvas, and paints mainly in acrylics, cleverly embellishing her work with silver and gold leaf.
