About the artist

Capturing memories in images to enhance your home and your life
Val works with a range of different materials to create lively expressive paintings. For Val, painting has always been a part of life although for many years it was fitted around her business careeer and family. She is mostly self-taught and has lucky to find several excellent teachers especially in recent years..

She enjoys experimenting and trying out new techniques; increasingly she works in a more abstracted way. Colour, shape and texture convey the story of her images. Recent work has concentrated on portraits a Fauvist or expressive styles, and abstract , often using a painting knife. She usually works in oil, occasionally acrylic or mixed media.

Val's paintings capture a special moment, place or person in an image that can be used to decorate the home or workplace; some are based on her own memories, others are commissioned pieces.

Val's work is shown on an ongoing way at Hitchin Information Office and Bromham Mill Gallery in Bedford.
