Val’s involvement in all aspects of art began in the1960s. Formal and casual training from attending various art courses and workshops gave her the impetus to study all aspects of the fine arts, finally leading her into teaching at various institutions. Over the years, there has been a shift in her choice and application of subject matter, possibly due to travel and study into other civilisations both Ancient and mythological.

Her love of texture has led her into discovering and employing a different approach to the use of watercolour, pastels and collage. A recent return to encaustic painting has highlighted this urge to showcase texture.
