Original artworks by Val Leary for sale
Denmark is my home town and I am passionate about its people and environment, a never ending source of inspiration. A keen interest in art was evident from an early age and through my school years I had a number of very good art teachers, including Geoff Ridley, Eileen Hodgson and Bob Pollard, their enthusiasm for my artistic potential was instrumental in me furthering the learning process.
Art sat on the back burner for some years, however when time permitted, I completed various TAFE units and Summer School courses, covering drawing, watercolour and pastel mediums.
With retirement came the opportunity to become more involved with various art groups and so emerged a keen desire to improve all aspects of my painting technique.
All styles of art interest me and I am keen to try any medium or method. Each new approach tends to become ”my favourite “ for a time, however Watercolour is my true passion..
