Visitor's Comments: -Hi, Valerie. I'm not sure if you remember me, but we met at your exhibition in Jack London Square. I was so impressed by your work that I got a little dizzy--... lost in the fog. Needless to say, from one aspiring artist to an art diva---you're the best! Your images have taught me a lot! Your resume is impressive as well. I would love to have you as an art mentor---I mean that. Thanks again -Hi, I saw your paintings a few years ago at Jack London Square and have been so sorry I didn't purchase one at that time. Do you still have... -I was so blessed and inspired by your website. The collages speak volumes to me of who you have always represented yourself to be.
