Valerie Shanks' Profile
The work I display in my shop is a departure from my day job.
Everything you see here is inspired either from something someone said or maybe an experience that I have recently had.
For instance the crazy monkeys are from an experience that my daughter in law's sister recently had........making lemonade from lemons, so to speak.
I have enjoyed art my whole life. I am always exploring new methods of creative expression. I love to sculpt and paint. I also love to play with fire. My mother called me a little fire bug, perhaps that is why I enjoy lamp working so much, I get to create with fire!
I have always loved frogs, I captured them relentlessly as a child. They are one of my favorite creatures, they are fascinating.
As time permits, I will add frog sculpts to my shop. Hope you enjoy viewing my creations as much as I enjoyed making them.
