Artist - Valerie Dearlove
I am an Outsider Artist working in oil on canvas. My work has been described as primitive, unique, with a clever sense of colour.
I aim to draw in and entertain the viewer with a tongue-in- cheek attitude of fun and zest for living and will make you smile.
Inspirations stem from her North African family roots, the African-American painter William H Johnson, and Paul Gauguin.
Two of my paintings hang in Ealing Film Studios, London and one in the Montmartre district of Paris.
I am also an Illustrator and Author; illustrating two children’s books and am in the process of doing my own children’s book, and I have written short stories and illustrated in two editions for the Walton Street Writers, Oxford,
