Based in southern Sydney I enjoy creating artwork in a variety of mediums including watercolour, gouache and charcoal. Feeling a strong connection to nature I am drawn to painting landscapes, marine art, and still life, searching for moments of beauty, luminosity and movement.

The charm of Sydney is at the centre of my art and I am constantly inspired by the city and it’s waterways and gardens. I also love to explore coastal towns and their relationship to the ocean is a constant source of inspiration for me.

I have always had a passion for art and design. Early in my career I formally trained in Photography at Ultimo TAFE and later completed a Diploma of Graphic Design at the Design Centre, Enmore. I am now focussed on working mainly in watercolour but also embrace working in gouache, pastel and charcoal.

There is something magical about the movement and luminosity of watercolour that allows me to work quickly with bold expressive marks. I strive to instill my work with the energy of the environment and my hope is to share this with you.

Best wishes,
Virginia Villa
