The top part of the dress sculpture is constructed from Tiffany

green patina textured copper, and oiled Lokta Nepalese paper

with inlaid jute for the skirt. The designs are illustrative of

the male/female aspects of Veronica's readers an clients she

refers to as Shield Maidens. She applies herself as an

Empath/Truth Seeker/Soul Keeper and Leader of The 

Shield Maidens Social Movement.

with the topics of revelatory dreams, twin womb survival,

triangles, shadow identity, soul journey, assertiveness, inner

The Shield Maiden’s Woven Metal Threads of Resilience 

express the combined epitome of a Shield Maiden as

sometimes vulnerable, but honest in their feelings, who

eventually come to possess towering strength, insight and

generosity of spirit.

Veronica's second memoir is entitled The Priceless Truth,

A Bold Examination of Betrayal, Domestic Violence, Deaths  

and the Opiate Crisis.  A Shield Maidens Handbook: A

Companions Guidebook rounds out Rev. Veronica's bold

discovering their individual True Images and Soul Missions,

underneath their everyday obstacles, developing grit and potential

through the healing of grief, and coping with change, loss and

and recovery.
