- Artist Portfolio Magazine – Q2 Art Competition
- Valerie Barbeau – Gresham, OR
I have painted since childhood. At the age of 15, I found myself unable to continue in public education and my high school art teacher encouraged me towards going to art school. I attended art school for one year but found that when the school tried to mold me in their vision, I could not comply.
Over my adult years, I took several breaks from painting. My life took different directions, as I wanted to incorporated other life experiances.
For 10 years, I taught art to women in recovery at a residential care facility. I met many women who found their hidden creative abilities, learning to paint and making jewelry.
I am now retired and painting full time but never say never to exploring new adventures.
I hope you enjoy my artwork in your home or place of business as a colorful artistic piece of art where you can sit, relax and let your mind go away from the stress of the day. I hope it take you to a spirit of transitional aspirations.
