Romy Rey

Romy Rey is a Swiss Artist, located in Richmond, Surrey (West London) who questions one’s perception of reality. Some of her paintings are a re-interpretation of landscapes she has visited during her extensive cultural travels, mainly in Central and South America. Other works render familiar elements in variable scales and combinations or portray striking images of ancient or tribal objects in imaginary settings. Romy has exhibited in numerous group shows in England and Europe. Her pictures are in collections in the UK, Switzerland, France, Germany, Mexico and Brazil.

Romy was born in Zurich, Switzerland, studied in Paris and Geneva, settled in England where she worked as a translator and a partner in bookshops in Hampstead and Richmond. She has been a painter working in oil for over twenty years.
