Most of my artwork have been created at different periods in my life. Some of these works exist and some do not, while some continue existing. You may notice differences in all my styles. This is why I work for DMAE, that is: ‘Depends On My Alter Ego’. I would not go much into the psycho-babble of that term. I’d rather leave it for those within the system to think about it.
What I do know is; at different points in my life, I am a different person. And this different person creates what she or he has to create to deal with that particular trauma or experience. We all have different hats and masks. Mine might be a bit more exaggerated and thus becomes a disorder. Who does not experience the same?…yet with certain differences.
So this is how my art evolves into being what it is. Sometimes abstract, sometimes graphic, sometimes a cartoon, sometimes a mixture of all…quite like our varied human emotions, thoughts and experiences which constantly changes every nanosecond.
…by the end of this sentence I already am a different person.

SO WELCOME TO VAL’S OFFICIAL WEBSITE!
Enjoy what you see and see what you enjoy.
Due to an increase in workload, Val has closed her art blog and previous blog post.
You can always post a question for Val to answer and she shall leave a reply behind when she isn’t doing the million things that she is doing. If it is too personal feel free to CONTACT her directly but do understand that she is always doing something and most often not getting paid for it. Val does volunteer her services at Saathi Haath Badhana , Pune on the first Tuesday of every month and conducts Hang Out with Art on the fourth Saturday of every month. Do check out their calendar for the schedule.
If you wish to have tea with her and some mad fun do catch her floating about Gyaan Adab Centre , Pune on the first Wednesday of every month from 4.30pm – 6.30pm. There are no promises on meeting her though as Val’s always on the move.
If you wish to stay updated on all her activities, monthly schedule, workshops, conferences and work around The Red Door then subscribe to the newsletter here.
Peace, Colour and Magic!
