About the Artist: Val Lally

Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Val always had a love of art and nature which was heavily influenced by her mother who was always doing some form of art or craft or digging in her garden.

Although her mother was very artistic, both of her parents were very traditional and encouraged Val to go into nursing rather than art school because they felt that art was a hobby, not a career. It wasn’t until after she moved to Florida in 1996 and raised her three children, that she returned to her true passion of art and launched her new career as a watercolor artist.

Val is an award-winning artist, and has been in numerous select group exhibitions throughout Florida, as well as online art shows. Her art is in restaurants throughout Florida and in private collections throughout the United States, as well as Europe.

Using nature and her gardens as her inspiration, Val’s paintings are bright, vibrant and have a subtle movement to them. She achieves this with thoughtful planning, many, many layers of glazes and a lot of patience! Through her photography, she enjoys capturing an image of something and paints an “up close and personal” view of it. Typically, Val paints in a realistic style with the background elements depicted as abstract representation of its surroundings: just impressions of shape, color, texture and mood. She wants this contrast to add visual drama to her paintings.

Watercolor is Val’s medium that she most enjoys because it offers her the ability to express translucent light and sparkling shadows like no other medium she has ever tried. Like nature, as well as life, Val feels watercolors are fluid and ever changing, organic.
