The Science in Art and Techniques of the French Impressionists

Valerie Collymore has exhibited her work all over Washington state and her work can be found in collections the world over. She trained as a physician in pediatrics and became a full-time artist later in life. Through works attentive to the “in-the-moment” character of a scene, to design, color and unusual light effects, and striving for a painterly impressionist style, her hope is to share the visual feast that is the magnificent creation that surrounds us and to connect with viewers through shared experiences.
