SEE NOTICE IN THE ART HOUSE

Verena was fortunate to come from a family with a great appreciation of art; she had many opportunities to look at art books, visit galleries and develop her own creativity growing up in on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. As a teenager she would spend hours painting at home, as well as attending lessons at her local Art Society. Her local art instructors gave her a firm basis in traditional art skills. After Secondary Education she went on to learn about more contemporary art styles by studying Bachelor of Fine Art at Monash University Melbourne. Then by doing a Graduate Diploma in Art Therapy at La Trobe University, she developed an appreciation of the emotional power of art making. After finishing her studies, she moved to Switzerland in 2005 where she launched her career teaching English as a foreign Language. Inspired by the European landscape, it is at this time she took up ‘plein-air’ watercolour painting.she fell in love with watercolour and spent much of her free time, when not teaching English, painting watercolour.
