Welcome to my visual world!
I have been creating art for as long as I can remember. As a child I was obsessed with drawing, creating images that are very similar in theme to those I am creating today!
I was fortunate enough to have attended Parsons the New School for Design in both New York and Paris. After graduating I spent many years working as an illustrator and toy designer. I painted a series of murals depicting "Rock and Roll Heaven" for a popular downtown NY restaurant. My work was shown in alternative galleries in NY and LA. I was written about in many publications and was featured along with my work in a national print ad campaign for Dom Ruinart Champagne. My paintings were also used as backdrops in an HBO comedy special.
Today, I live and work in New York City. In addition to these dreamscapes, I also paint commission portraits in oil. You may see that work at www.portraitsbyvalerie.com.
Thanks again for visiting my site. I hope you make my art part of your world too!!
