Veronica Colvin is a versatile contemporary classically trained artist with a passion for telling stories via her artworks – in traditional and digital mediums. She primarily focusses on Portraiture, Figurative and Still Life works.
Sydney based and professionally trained, Veronica trained with Julian Ashton Art School at The Rocks, Sydney (winning the Sydney Mechanics School of Arts Scholarship (full-time) and the George Lambert Sculpture Prize); Studio Escalier, Paris and The Teaching Studios, New York.
Veronica has an extensive background in story telling and communications. Prior to focusing on painting, Veronica was a Hair, Make-Up and Special Effects Artist (plus qualified hairdresser and barber), with a strong focus in the Film and TV / Commercial industries. Prior to that, Veronica worked as a Communications / Public Relations and Marketing Practitioner, working in agency and in-house roles across the consumer and technology industries.
When she is not painting, Veronica is a keen open water swimmer and swims all year round. You will mostly find her swimming at various Sydney harbour beaches (or at the pool when the weather is just too ugly!).
