‘I begin a painting, then end it. I push and pull it. Like a roller-coaster some rides are gentler than others. Paint goes down, and then more, until I have something to start. Only there does it really begin, like landing on a field. In an organic manner, I respond to what is in front of me.’
Valerie opened her graphic design + illustration firm 32 years ago. Ten years later she began carving out time for her painting.
