Artists I admire. Part 2.

I thought I would tell you about another artist that I admire. Her work is so beautiful and she happens to be a lovely lady too.

I first met Valerie Land when she came to tutor a session for Tywyn Art Group. She always made the day so enjoyable with plenty of laughs. She made everything look so easy but our measly efforts were never anywhere near the quality of her work.

She mainly works with watercolour and gouache, though uses other media too. Her shore paintings are stunning, as is all her work. In fact I can’t quite find the words to do her work justice so I will finish this little post with some of her work.

You can see more of her work at
