My name is Valerie Garner and I create photographic/digital fine art prints. My camera is to me my brush and canvas, my art medium. I am mostly self-taught. I love learning new skills, so thatís always evolving and changing, and actually is a fairly good metaphor to the life journey we all travel on. I also love doing photo restoration projects, so feel free to contact me if you have images you are interested in getting restored.
My style is eclectic in that my taste changes both with the life journey Iím on as well as the mood and what inspires me at any given point. I love nature, flowers, still life, capturing unique perspectives, the beautiful Pacific Northwest, retro, and people; especially the candid images that produce an emotional connection to those viewing. I love sharing my perspective of beauty, hopefully in a unique way, with others.
I have had some of my images published, including a newspaper in the United Kingdom, a pictorial guide for Seattle, and a couple others in textbooks and/or book covers. My work has also been represented in a couple of art galleries including Warren Knapp Gallery on Capital Hill in Seattle.
Each fine art print captures A Moment with me. I invite you to share some of those moments (please click on my galleries link) and hope you enjoy my work. Thanks for visiting!
