Following a series of exhibitions in various prestigious London galleries Victoria Wolny returns to Emporium in Lichfield to launch her latest powerful, emotionally charged collection of oil paintings. Victoria Wolny was born in 1974 and raised in Burton upon Trent. Her early interest in art came from watching her father, a prolific landscape and portrait artist, at work in his studio. Here she learnt various painting techniques using different mediums but was particularly interested in oil paint. In order to pursue her other interest in Natural Sciences, Victoria gained a scholarship to Denstone College and graduated from Warwick University with a degree in Biological Sciences. Her passion for the arts, however, never faltered and she produced several pieces of work during her study time.
