Venetia Syms - Artist 

I enjoy experimenting and developing my style through the medium of the natural world. I love the frenzy and excitement that comes from a large, mixed palette of colour, finding tonal harmonies amongst the chaos.

Venetia graduated from the Heatherley’s School of Fine Art with a diploma in portraiture in 2014.  Prior to this she studied traditional skills for one year at an atelier in Florence and subsequently attended the University College Falmouth where she studied drawing.

Her paintings have been shown in exhibitions and art shows across the U.K and the Netherlands as well as a solo show in 2016 in Harare, Zimbabwe.

Born in Belfast in 1990, Venetia was educated in Switzerland (International School of Zug) and Dorset (Bryanston)
