On a day in U.S. history to be one of the worst racial tensions, predominantly black Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles broke out after two white policemen scuffle with a black motorist suspected of drunken driving. 50-square-mile area of South Central Los Angeles, looting stores, torching buildings, and beating whites as snipers fired at police and firefighters. This event took place 975 mile south of her birth place though it had no direct effect on her birth place, the country was devastated. Order was restored five days later. Valerie was born with a bone disease that would make her talent that much more important. Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disorder characterized by bones that break easily, often from little or no apparent cause. She would never live a typical active life of sports, or activities that would be of a physical nature. A social stigma would keep her out a more popular main stream of the other children. It would tend to make others look at her with confusion about the disorder. So she funneled her life into creativity and love of nature in Photography and art. First, Photoing portraits of children. Then, on to life in printing. Finally, to life with nature photography and painting. She traveled the this country (U.S.A.) to photo and paint the deep beauty. From flat land to Mountains, Yellowstone Park to Los Angeles. After having lived in Beverly Hills, California for many years, she collected many photos scenes of the cities deep beauty. She is current at work on painting and publishing other master pieces of the city, landscapes, portrait of famous faces, wild life and pets.
She is an only child, that is a big part of were her passion all began. She started drawing for other people and loving every minute of it. She has drawn pictures of everything from landscapes, portraits and peoples pets. She has taken numerous class, tech courses and have an associates degree.
