Valerie Christmas is an etcher and silkscreen printer.
Born and educated in Surrey, she studied drawing and design at Wimbledon College of Art and also holds an honours degree in painting from the Royal College of Art.
After bringing up three children and a period of teaching art she concentrated on full-time printing while studying etching at Bournemouth and Poole School of Art and Design.
As a keen observer of nature, she finds the changing seasons, the varied forms and patterns to be found in flowers, foliage, animals, insects and water a constant source of inspiration.
She has exhibited in the Royal Academy and other London galleries and throughout the UK. Her work has been sold as far afield as Australia and the USA.
