Hello, my name is Valerie Watson. I am a mixed media mosaic Artist. I have always loved the arts, and have used many mediums throughout my life, always experimenting and exploring. I spent my youth in Salt Lake City, Utah, and moved to Arizona as a teenager. I received my BA of Art in interior Design in 2004 from the Art Institute of Phoenix. I am a mom, a daughter, a sister, a maid, a landscaper, a nurse, and so many other things. In addition to all those things, I am an artist. In spite of all those things, I find the time to create, out of love for visual arts, and out of necessity for my own well being. My goal when I complete each new piece is to get your eyes attention, through bold colors and a whimsical nature. Glass and glitter have become my perfect creative outlet. I love the wide range of colors, and how I can mix them like paint. I also love the reflection. I’m innately attracted to sparkly things. Every time you look in the mirror, something beautiful will always be looking back. And the mirror is pretty nice too!
