Born in 1952 in Karamea, a small rural community in the Buller region, now lives on the hibiscus Coast and has done for 25 years. Valerie has always drawn for as long as she can remember (painting came later) being one of nine in her family money was tight and materials were somewhat limited. it wasn't until 1981 and as a part time student, that she attended Whitecliffe College of Arts that she fell in love with dry pastels and the use of bright vivid colour. At the age of 33 Valerie began to feel the frustration of wanting to throw herself into her art but at the same time the need to earn an income and remain independent. The demands of earning a living kept Vallerie from reaching her potential and became, what she refers to as a spasmodic artist. In 2011, Valerie held her first Exhibition featuring 15 paintings.
