About the Artist
Valerie Estienne grew up with a strong love for the arts but worked in the business sector for several years before being able to pursue her passion professionally.
Having lived and travelled in several different countries around the world Valerie draws on her personal experiences and the cultures she has immersed herself in for her subject matter.
Inspired by nature, travel and architecture Valeries’ work explores the relationship between traditional methods and digital technology.
Originally working with mediums such as oil and watercolour it was the discovery of the Ipad pro that ignited Valerie’s passion for art once more.
The transition into a digital medium has allowed her work to become more fluid and experimental, it is an ever evolving investigation into how colour changes the effect and the impact of a piece and the mood it purveys.
The investigation highlights a clear interest to explore colour over form and specifically how light influences the subject matter.
