About Me

Being a visual artist does not automatically make composing words to describe your work easy. The images I create are interpretations of internal thoughts and emotions, as well as, external examinations and representations of nature and people. 


Although I have worked in many genres of art through the years, abstract expressionism always seems to be the home to which I return until recently. I have found a great excitement in taking surreal art and my passion for art journal doodling and combined them in to a  unique style. Currently I am developing a portfolio of this style.  I feel a physical and emotional connection is the impetus or driving force that allows my artistic freedom to emerge.


When I began My View From 1502, back in September 2010, It did not take long before I realized that I was not the only person involved in this project. Nor, that the journey would become much more important than just creating art every day. The responses from others became a source of liability and impetus which has become encouragement along the way. 


I do not know where this blog will end, but I know I have to let “my view” take me along this journey. Often I am afraid that I am not up to that responsibility. Many times I consider giving up-I am glad I have not. As you view a day’s work or post from this project’s past, it is my wish that you will leave with a better understanding and appreciation for me, my process and creation.


Thanks for sharing the journey,


Valerie
