Statement

Valerie’s artistic journey was born out of miseries and
miracles. Feeling herself drifting aimlessly through her
twenties, she nevertheless left them with a
BA in Art History and a BFA in Fibers

Then came 2010. A particularly tumultuous time for Valerie
with changes in her personal life and the people in it
“I was left beautifully scared and stripped bare of all the
empty burdens of the past. I discovered new inspirations,
moved to a new city, and a new beginning.”

Valerie’s photographs conjure up images of spinning and
twirling freely like a child, and the innocent simplicity of
her technique appropriately reflect her creative rebirth.
Carrying only a camera and an ipod, she walks the early
morning streets holding her camera at her side as her arm
swings naturally to the music. Dutifully catching the
fleeting surrounds of her morning walk, the camera
in fact documents a journey of healing and renewal.

“Art gave me life, music showed me how to live it,
love made it beautiful.”
