Veronica Waechter

Veronica Waechter grew up mostly in Terrace, BC and took interest in art at a young age, being mostly influenced by Gitxsan style. Veronica’s father, Martin Waechter, attended the ‘Ksan School in Gitamaax from 1998 – 2000.

In 2014, Veronica decided to pursue her artistic career and began studies at the Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art. Under the tutelage of Master carvers Carvers Dempsey Bob, Stan Bevan, and Ken McNeil, Veronica learned several invaluable skills such as design, research, listening, tool making, relief carving, sculptural carving, painting, inlay and cedar weaving processes. 

In 2016, Veronica attended the Emily Carr University of Art + Design, where she developed her skills and began to incorporate new concepts, materials, and techniques to her process. Veronica graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art in 2018 and shortly after began working on collaborative projects with artists in both Vancouver and Terrace.

Veronica has been twice awarded the YVR Youth Scholarship and has been mentored by several artists such as Dempsey Bob, Gerry Sheena, Chuck Ya'ya Heit, Vanessa Morgan, Donna Harris, and Val Morgan and plans to continue learning and working alongside other artists.
