"A refreshing take on the theme of touch and connection from an Australian artist in London. Valerie Ellis is one to watch."
Erin Caswell, the Salterton Arts Review...
Valerie Ellis is an artist, formerly a psychotherapist, with a studio near west London. She uses paper to represent human experience and intrapersonal dynamics.
Valerie gained her arts degree and psychology degree from the prestigious University of Queensland, Australia. After 20 years in private practice, Valerie moved back to the UK, where she'd lived as a child.
With a psychological lens, Valerie’s artwork uniquely reflects themes like childhood, stress and disguise.
