Upon completing her MA, Vronskaya has exhibited her work with extensively with John Martin Gallery, London, Boundary Gallery London, Rebecca Hossack Gallery, London and Kilmorack Gallery, Scotland. Vronskaya was chosen to be Artist In residence at Westminster School of Art, where she later taught. Vronskaya has also taught extensively at Ruskin School of Art, Winchester School of Art and Westminster School of Art. Vronskaya has been awarded Best Local Artist by the ICA, Scotland and the TMI Award, Denmark. Vronskaya's work is held in private and public collections around the world, including the Tate Britain, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London and the Pushkin and Tet'yakov Gallery in Moscow. Vronskaya's self-portrait Night Studio Study was acquired by Ruth Borchard Collection in 2011. Vronskaya is represented by John Martin Gallery in London.
Inspired by her study of icon painting and religious art, Vronskaya's work explores the way in which art stands between the real and imagined, the temporal and spiritual. In Vronskaya's own words art is a 'transitional tunnel connecting and separating us from another dimension.'
Vronskaya's Night Studio Study captures the artist in oil on canvas. The frenzied application of oil creates the sense of an artist in the midst of a creative burst, her painting hand beyond the canvas, out of sight and in the process of artistic production.
