about valerie hodgson
A Whitehorse resident for over 40 years, Valerie Hodgson has been creating art for most of those years. Although largely self-taught, Valerie has traveled to study with painters she admires. She works in oil in a contemporary impressionistic style.
Painting is my visual and emotional response to the everyday world. Color, form, light and shadow all intrigue me. I find these elements in many subjects, yet it is the Yukon landscape that repeatedly inspires me. I capture things in a simple painterly manner, balancing reality and personal response.
