I make textileart wall hangings. My work is about my love of painting and layering organic images on fibers. It is also about being in love with color, lots of juicy color, in big pots, for dyeing and painting white fibers. Then I love the way fibers feel when touched and their wonderful textures. Patching and piecing one textile with another and painting and printing it, makes it even more exciting. Woven cloth reminds me of the web that holds us all together. I feel so fortunate to be able to work in textileart!
Valerie received her Master's in Design from North Carolina State University's College of Design in Raleigh. For the past 20 years, she has been drawing, painting, and making prints and images of nature, and she loves combining and layering these organic shapes. Valerie's work has a highly textured surface on a fiber format. This reminds her of the web of nature that holds us all together.
