About Valerie Smith

 
 
  • Biography
    I drew my first horse at the age of 5 and haven't stopped drawing  since. After receiving my BFA from UCLA, teaching middle school for 3 years,  working 24 for the state of California, and raising a family, I retired in 2007 with the intention of returning to my passion: drawing and painting horses.  My dream has always been to own a horse and divide
    my time between riding and pursuing various artistic avenues. That dream became reality when I met a wonderful man after being a lonely widow for 4 years.  Our dreams became one and we married on 10/10/10 and moved to Oregon 6 months later. 
    My objective in my artwork has always been to capture the majesty, beauty and powerful presence of the horse in every media: graphite, colored pencil, pastel, watercolor, and acrylic.
    My work can be seen at two galleries here in Cental Oregon and shown at various shows throughout the area.  I have won awards for entries at the County Fair and continue to enter my work every year.
    It is my goal to keep expanding my artistic horizons and to share my passion for everything I create.
