From Valerie:
I am first and foremost a storyteller. I have specific ideas and messages I want to express in my Art. I work with intent. My goal is to create Art that suggests new considerations for objects that are mundane and familiar. As a multi- media artist, I have chosen to express myself using textiles, this mixed-media approach includes textile paint, dye, and markers as well as removing and adding color. The process of layering in cloth is what particularly attracts me in. I’m attempting to produce cloth that is mysterious; the idea of seeing almost invisible images created by color and stitch intrigues me.  My work has been exhibited nationally and has won awards. As a retired art educator from the District of Columbia Public Schools in Washington, DC, I continue to share my passion for textiles by teaching and presenting lectures nationally.
