Valerie Shanks' Profile

About

The work I display in my shop is a departure from my previous creative path.
Each work is an exploration of what entertains my imagination.
Everything you see here is inspired either from something someone said or maybe an experience that I have recently had.
Be careful what you say or do around me. It may just become the subject of my next sculpt. 😉
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…
