Valerie Speer

Phone: 403-677-0007

Philosophy: The landscape we live in is alive, and constantly speaking to us, bringing hope, reflecting the power, creativity and personality of God. In our experience with our environment we can discover life changing moments and intimacy with our creator.

Style: Prairie and wilderness landscapes in a simplistic yet powerful style, similar to that of the Group of Seven

Technique: Acrylic on Canvas

Background: Valerie grew up in Alberta and the interior of B.C. She always demonstrated talent and interest in visual arts completing a 2 year visual arts diloma with Okanogan College. After traveling for a year, Valerie pursued her education and career in Audiovisual Communications, with photography and video production. In the late 90's Valerie picked up her paintbursh again and being inspired by Lauren Harris of the Group of Seven, she began reflecting her envionronment in a similar style. Valerie finds this expression of painting captures the lighting and spirit of a place better than a more detailed rendition.

Presently: Valerie was the resident artist of the former Trading Post Gallery in Rosebud, Alberta. She currently displays originals and print in the Mercantile Dining room for Rosebud Dinner and Theatre. Valerie is experiencing a growing demand for commision work as her originals are quickly purchased. Her latest commission willl be displayed on the CEO floor of EnCana Place downtown in Calgary, Alberta.
