Valerie enjoys creating art in many forms and media, however, she considers portraiture of people and/or pets her specialty. As an animal lover working in animal rescue it is always an inspiration to portray these creatures with their very human characteristics by themselves or interacting with their owners.

Commissions are always welcomed as there is nothing more original or touching than a person's face or the character of a beloved pet. Each work tells a story. Additional info on commissioning a pet portrait can be found here and the Pet Portraits Gallery is here

Framing is also available and professionally done by the artist at a reasonable cost to suit the artwork and the customer.
