About

All of the items listed in my shop are created by me, from photography to painted glassware to handcrafted jewelry, I must admit… I’m addicted to Etsy and have developed a severe case of artistic ADD, which isn’t a bad thing really, just a sincere need to create each and every day! I’m a passionate artist with a regard for detail… my work is the result of a life-long desire to produce meaningful, distinctive art that will delight and satisfy. Many of my handcrafted jewelry items are original, one-of-a-kind, pieces of wearable art that have been designed and created with much love and peaceful energy… fashioned to charm, enchant and delight… with a modern yet vintage feel.

It is my hope that you will find something here that speaks to you in a special way and makes you smile. It seems to me that women work harder than ever in this fast-paced world we share, even with all of the…

It is my hope that you will find something here that speaks to you in a special way and makes you smile. It seems to me that women work harder than ever in this fast-paced world we share, even with all of the modern conveniences, we’re still under tremendous pressure to do, and be, the best we can for the sake of our family, friends and community. We deserve a little self-indulgence once in awhile, a small token of appreciation for oneself, a reminder that says “I deserve this because I am special!“
I sincerely wish for you to notice your talents, gifts and all of the unselfish things you do for others… to embrace your genuine self and celebrate being the beautiful YOU that you really are!

*If you're in the Western New York area and are looking for an artist, I'd love to hear from you! I have many photos of various types of decorative paint work that I've completed so if you have something special in mind please feel free to contact me - I love to paint and there's no such thing as a job that's too big or too small

WHO IS VALLEYKAT?
My name is Valerie Kruwel, I'm an artist and photographer living in the Western New York area. Art has always been my passion... and using many different mediums to express my creative-self helps keep me feeling balanced, fulfilled and (somewhat) sane!

VK's TOP (lucky) SEVEN CREATIVE ESCAPES...
1. Painting - pretty much anything & everything
2. Photography (portrait, macro and nature)
3. Walking along the beaches of Lake Erie at sunset, so peaceful... sea glass hunting & throwing the ball to Daisy (THE world's BEST dog, ever.)
4. Creating new jewelry for my shop, especially taking old estate / costume jewels and transforming them into something fresh and new and one-of-a-kind.
5. Plain, old-fashioned doodling.
6. Gardening... everything about it... LOVE it!
7. Road-Trippin'... just me, all alone (sometimes I'll bring Daisy the wonder-weiner-dog, she's an awesome travel buddy), my camera & sketch book, a tank of gas and Tim Horton's coffee in the cupholder. It's relaxing, inspiring, and definitely my favorite "break" from life and all of the responsibilities and little things we must do everyday. I say take some time for yourself once in awhile and you will be a happier person.
