Valerie’s love of art began at an early age. As a child she loved painting and drawing and often entered art contests, winning several prizes for poster and bookmark designs.
During high school Valerie was a student in the Claude Watson School for the Arts in North York. There she majored in Visual Arts and Ceramics while jointly studying academics at Earl Haig Secondary School.
Valerie later went on to attend the University of Toronto and received an Honours Bachelor of Science Degree in Neurosciences. While studying at the U of T, she also attended the Ontario College of Art and Design as a part-time student. She then continued her studies at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto and graduated as a Doctor of Chiropractic, now practising as a Network Care practitioner. She continues to take art courses- now at the Haliburton School for the Arts.
Valerie’s artwork can best be described as art for healing. In her art she strives to bring healing between races, between genders, and between humans and the Divine. Some of her images are detailed comprehensive works. Some of her images are purely expressive art. In her expressive art she strives for personal healing by exploring her thoughts and emotion about situations in her own life- something she encourages others to do to find their own inner stories and myths and wounds.
