Vania completed her studies in Stage & Studio techniques at Perth Technical College & WAPPA majoring in scenic art in 1989. After P/T teaching in education and health departments including freelance work she went on to established her own company Sabi Art + Design. For over 25 years she has worked extensively for architects & interior designers specializing in commercial, retail & display art projects.

Artist Statement

I am drawn to landscapes with distinct light and texture, the movement of all weather conditions and how that plays on our surroundings. I hope to convey a journey through layers & hints. Whispers, echoes of memories past, a timelessness that is visually poetic, by provoking elusive fleeting glimpses into our psyche.”
