Vega attended Leeds University graduating with an honours degree in Fine Art. She has spent much of her life travelling and painting at home and abroad before settling on Lewis.Her paintings are imbued with the essence of living on this Hebridean Isle. The weather, light, water, landscape and island life are the subjects of her work.She is adept at capturing the effects of movement, be it the wind, the water or from the deck of a boat, not as a fixed representation, rather as an evocation that allows the viewer’s imagination free play. Being a keen sailor her marine paintings are heartfelt, as she knows what it is like to claw to windward against a foul tide.
Her paintings are in collections world wide.
