Veronica Jamison is an alumna of Howard University (BA, Journalism) and spent nearly a decade in broadcast news as a producer for NPR and the AP before she earned her MS in Fashion Design from Drexel University and embarked on a fashion and design career. She teaches fashion illustration at Made Institute, fashion industry at Drexel, and has been a guest lecturer at The University of the Arts. She's worked with community organizations like Mighty Writers and the Philadelphia Arts in Education Partnership, and is an Executive Board Member for ICON—The Illustration Conference.

Veronica’s artwork is inspired by her background in fashion design and her love for movement and color. It also reflects her appreciation for the stories and history of women of color. Veronica’s clients include Essence Magazine, SheaMoisture, Bloomingdale's, Hallmark, and now Little, Brown Books for Young Readers with her debut picture book A Computer Called Katherine: How Katherine Johnson Helped Put America on the Moon, which received a starred review from Kirkus.
