Spoken Word Artist and Musician, Camille Veronica is a native of Flint, MI and currently lives in South Florida where she continues to explore what she views as the necessary connection between life and the arts.

She began writing early in life and started seriously focusing on poetry in 1990. Eventually the pull to perform called her and she found her spoken word voice. She approaches poetry from a storyteller point of view. She has performed in various venues in the U.S., England, and Kenya. Camille Veronica has not only performed spoken word but also organized artists to share their talent in non-traditional venues. She self-published Potluck Poetry, performed and placed in Poetry Slams in South Florida and toured with an ensemble of poets for the local original production of Female.

Camille Veronica’s writing is an extension of her music. An accomplished vocal artist, she loves and appreciates a variety of music genres. Her background is in music education and always finds ways to share and teach the beauty of music. She feels music sets tone, conveys the needs of a people and should catalogue the culture and climate of society. She plays piano for Norland United Methodist Church in Miami Gardens, FL. There she leads the praise and worship band and directs the Youth and Men’s choirs.

Camille Veronica is also the owner and designer of 4Diaspora Designs, her online jewelry business where she promotes adorning as a means of self-care. Her work can be found at www.4DiasporaDesigns.com.

Camille Veronica’s next venture is cultivating her ongoing interest in becoming a voice-over artist.
