Working with her chosen soft and colorful medium, Valerie creates artworks in a number of different styles, ranging from large sculptural objects to simple wall-hangings and functional objects. I enjoy Valerie’s series of wall-hangings, most of which are designed with a sort of collage sensibility, with deliberate shapes of felt layered over one another to create a distinct scene. There’s a sense of whimsy in all of these works, with many featuring slightly anthropomorphized animals, flowers, and highly saturated background hues.

Valerie’s portfolio work also includes a selection of wearable artworks and even home décor like a fully felted ottoman. The artist also dabbles in sculpture, creating bright, cartoonish creatures using paper-maché and polymer clay, painting them with bright blues and other colors.
