Valerie Burn, working in Mixed-media, Painting, Textiles

Trained in Fine Art at Leicester and Nottingham Colleges of Art and Design, Valerie then worked in art education for over thirty years. Her style and technique is eclectic and diverse. It has a decorative quality, which reflects her interest in light and colour. She is inspired by the pattern work that occurs in both the natural and manmade environments. Silk painting includes underwater images, flowers and Cornish landscapes. Other fabric work includes cushions, scarves, reverse appliqué and weaving. Her paintings draw on the shape, colour and form found in plants and nature. She also works in watercolour and oils. Commissioned work can be designed to meet your own needs and ideas, eg. a scarf to match a particular fabric or outfit for a special occasion. Her studio is always open for visits to discuss any interest you may have. Two day workshops are held in the studio for up to five people. These cost £70 and include all tuition, basic materials and lunch. Please feel welcome to ring or e-mail if you have any queries.
