the art and craft of Valda Robison
Paintings and Drawings
~:~~:~~ About the Artist ~~:~~:~
Valda's has been painting and drawing since retirement in 2000. Her chosen media are watercolor, pencil, ink and colored pencil. Her style reflects her love of detail, color and light. Her work has been routinely accepted into area juried art shows and the Missouri Watercolor Society exhibitions.
Recently she has been experimenting with concertina (accordion-folded) and other small handmade books styles, using her skills in watercolor and calligraphy to create one-of-a-kind artist books. These books all center around the scripture texts.
