A true artist breathes life into a painting
and in turn, a well-done painting breathes life
back into its creator. -VEM

Some samples of Val's work
Valerie's artwork encompasses an incredibly wide range and is executed with amazing attention to detail. She is a master of diverse media, from treebark and milkweed silk to oils, watercolors and pastels. Examples of her subjects include fantastical mermaids, froggy ponds, cows at the window, bears in the backyard... but she also creates beautiful realistic portraits of pets and people. There is one aspect common to all of Valerie's pictures: When you look at them, you feel as if you could just walk into the image. So please go ahead, visit the gallery. Enter the scenes.
