Valerie tutors day schools, usually for art clubs and societies by invitation.
Her most popular course explores gouache, a medium for which she is very enthusiastic.
In her mid-forties Valerie decided to escape from her school-teaching career and combine her first loves; walking and painting. The mountains and seashores of Wales beckoned her away from the flat landscape of East Anglia and her youth. Exploring light, texture and colour, Valerie's detailed painting style is a restful homage to a beautiful country.
