'The greatest artist will not be able to paint a flower which gives fragrance, fruits or seeds, but he can humbly try to capture a fragment of this most incredibly intricate tapestry of life.'

Veena Scialó lives and works in London as an artist and educator and spends  summers in Cabella Ligure, Italy. She holds regular art classes and teaches adults and children in her studio.

Veena  believes that creativity is like love, which flows when shared. She lives a spiritual live and her daily meditation allows her to bring another dimension to her artwork.

She was born in in 1966 in a small town surrounded by beautiful Austrian mountains, lakes and forests. Inspired by nature, Veena expressed her creativity from early childhood through art and she feels that art embodies a form of worship. In 1992 her marriage brought Veena to London where she lives with her husband and a constant flow of visitors. She has three adult children, all of whom are also artists.

Veena is a member of NSEAD and SLWA, exhibiting regularly in her local area.
