Although stage productions and musicals are her first love, Venetia also enjoys television and camera work. Experience includes FNB Corporate ads (2016). Venetia uses her spare time to write and direct plays. She staged a production De Melker (2011), which she wrote and directed. When she is not acting she is an impassioned drama teacher, who trained children casted in Long walk to Freedom, and Chappies. She also enjoys stage designing, which can be seen in Knot (2015). Venetia aims to make a mark in the South-African art industry and is determined to soar with her God-given talents.
