From the time Valerie left the wheat belt of WA and moved back to Perth with her family in the early 1970’s, she began experimenting with textiles. She was very successful with her large free form sculptural wall hangings but by the 1980’s she had moved back to picture making – although continuing to play with fibres.

Using a combination of knotting, weaving, appliqué and embroidery she created extraordinarily detailed textile scenes which are whimsical, richly coloured and astonishingly precise.
