"Art and Design are part insight, part inspiration, and a lot – of invention. In my studio, accidents happen, and that moves my work forward.  It is always exciting to watch work take on a life of its own.  I begin with the end in mind, and always land in a different place."
Educated at Ryerson University Toronto (fashion), Emily Carr College of Art Vancouver (foundation), VIU Nanaimo (graphic design), Valerie divides her time between her design and painting studios. Her graphic and colourful works reflect her profession as a visual communications designer.
