Val Hebert's Profile

About

Hi! I'm Val, a multimedia artist who is currently sidetracked by a love affair with fiber. I am a painter at heart, and an inventive seamstress, but love bringing my sensibilities together on the canvas of repurposed wool, which I then needle felt to my heart's content. I aim to bring whimsy and charm into each of my creations, and in that, I offer up handmade keepsakes for future generations.

I am a wife and mom to two teen boys, who are giving my husband and I a run for our money-yikes-, but it's all good, right??! My trusty sidekick and most loyal girl is Lola, (she's a hypo-allergenic Portuguese Water Dog). I live by the ocean in beautiful San Diego, California, where I find an abundance of inspiration and peace. My mind is lulled and excited like the ebb and flow of the water, and I find inspiration splashes over me like the spray of the waves. I'm never at a loss for new ideas…

I guess you can blame it on the salt air :o)

You can find my work in a few "brick and mortar" stores. Austin's Gallery is in Coronado, CA. and Make Good in South Park, (San Diego) and Caption Boutique and Gallery in the East Village, San Diego. I also do a few craft shows during the year. Please pop over to my website to find a list of upcoming events where you can find me, www.ValsArtStudio.com.

Don't be shy about purchasing from my shop! My work is 100% guaranteed that you will love what you buy! My work is filled with wooly wonderfulness, and photos just don't do them justice.
