Have you ever admired the glass painting on the windows at Cucina Rustica? The ones that set a pretty scene and catch the light beautifully through those earthy colours? Or the many paintings decorating the walls of our restaurant? You’ll be impressed to know that they were created by Cucina Rustica’s very own Violetta Brandys. Violetta is our Restaurant Manager, but she’s also a wonderfully talented painter and a Vedic art teacher. From paintings to decor, we’ve been lucky to have Violetta’s artistic eye bring style, creativity and atmosphere to Cucina Rustica over the years. This month, very excitingly, Violetta will be showcasing her amazing work in an art exhibition at Frederick’s Coffee Lounge & Bar, also in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter. We highly recommend you visit!
