Valerie is an accomplished artist with a keen eye for the majestic beauty of nature. Her art captures vast prairie skies and dramatic weather, leading viewers on journeys into her paintings. Her mountain vistas convey solitude amid breathtaking grandeur, with gentle light on peaks and serene reflections on lakes. Nature fuels Valerie's creativity, infusing her work with tranquility and the dreamlike quality she experiences in the wild.
With a background in Visual Arts and over two decades of professional painting, Valerie's work is a nod to her early inspiration from Lawren Harris and the Group of Seven, embracing simplicity of shape and form to convey her deep connection to nature.
Valerie recently received her signature status with the FCA.
As a landscape artist, I love hiking and immersing myself in nature before painting. My personal experiences of stillness, hope, and awe inspire the stories I want to convey in my art - moments I want to share and cherish long after they happen.
