She loves plein air painting. You just might see her outside painting in any month of the year and in almost any weather!
Painting outside combines Valerie’s love of art and nature. Although Valerie has lived in Boulder for many years she was originally a North Idaho farm girl. She grew up with a deep respect for the land and its beauty. Valerie often paints outdoors in natural light, seeking views that stimulate an emotional response. Also, because she has a background in architecture, she enjoys painting landscapes with buildings reminiscent of her rural roots. Valerie is a member of Plein Air Artists of Colorado and Plein Air Painters of Estes Park, the American Plains Artists, the Louisville Art Association, Cultural Arts Council of Estes Park, and Old Firehouse Art Center. She has numerous merit awards to her credit as well as Best of Show in the LAA Christmas show. Valerie’s work can be seen year round at Deselms Gallery in Cheyenne, WY, and other juried venues.
