Val’s paintings share amazing places and special people; something, somewhere or someone memorable. Nature, photos, conversations and sketches can all provide inspiration. Shapes, colours and lively brush strokes tell a story within a picture.
Working mainly in oils and acrylics, Val created portraits that capture personality as well as a likeness; riversides and landscapes convey seasonal atmosphere, and dancers whose lively sense of movement reflects the passion and drama of the music.
Colour, shape and drama are important elements in all Val’s paintings, whether expressing a mood or going beyond realistic to play with abstract, her style is expressive impressionist.
