is a full time oil painting artist who is passionate about the French Impressionist Tradition. She paints in this style, exhibits her work in galleries and prestigious national juried shows, and teaches the science behind art and techniques of the French Impressionists.
Having grown up in the south of France, where many of the original French Impressionists painted, this artist’s work brings with it an authenticity gained through the intimate knowledge of the unique landscapes and seascapes of the French Riviera and Provence.
Most works from Valerie’s last 6 annual solo exhibits in Seattle have found homes with collectors, and her workshops and classes – including chateau-based workshops in France – during the last 3 years usually sell out.
