VEENA SCIALÓ

'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. She loves to explore the parks and woodlands in her local area with her dog and pays yearly visits to southern Austria and the Ligure Region in Italy. She holds regular art classes for children, young people and adults 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. In her early twenties Veena’s innate search for the ultimate truth brought her to Sahaja Yoga, a meditation which allows anyone to easily reach  a state of deep silence and inner connection.  

Growing up in a small town surrounded by beautiful Austrian mountains, lakes and forests was a true blessing.  Inspired by nature, Veena expressed her creativity from early childhood through art and she feels that art embodies a form of worship. In 1991 her marriage brought Veena to London where she and her husband raised their three children. Their home in South East London is never short of visitors and a buzzing place full of art, music and Joy. 

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