Artist Statement

Valerie Vermeulen

My work is intuitive. Color, abstraction, line, shape, and minimalism are always part of my process regardless of genre. My compositions are absolutely inspired by my love for natural beauty and the beauty which lives inside of me. – The silent landscape of rural, NORTHERN NEW ENGLAND is endlessly inspiring to me. A visual moment, I hope the work speaks for itself. I hope my work engages the viewer in the pleasures of seeing, and the importance of what seeing is to our human nature.
