Veronica Torres, Manifest Differently’s Social Media/Communication Specialist, is an abstract artist with over three decades of experience. She employs a mixed-media approach, often featuring pen, ink, and gold foil flakes in her work. Her creative process is fueled by a diverse range of influences, including her own life experiences, Mexican culture, Goth-Subculture, and music. As a mental health advocate, Veronica sees art as a powerful tool for healing, self-expression, and disrupting the male gaze. Her artistic philosophy is summed up by her belief that society's labeled imperfections are an integral part of artistic life, and it is precisely these flaws that make life and art so unique and compelling.
Veronica is an alumna of Cal State East Bay, where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies, with an emphasis on strategic communication. Her academic career has strongly shaped her focus on public relations, marketing, and advertising, aligning her professional pursuits with her passion for artistic expression.
