About the Artist

Val Lally has been painting in watercolors for about 10 years. She has been in numerous juried art shows and has won several prestigious awards. Although she paints a variety of subject matter, Val enjoys painting flowers the most!




Artist's Statement

Val feels that everyone has their special gift to share with the world. She feels that her gift is to capture the beauty that is all around us with her camera and then put her interpretation of that wonder on canvas. What is truly gratifying to Val is when someone tells her that her artwork has lifted their spirits or has made them smile. That, she notes, is the greatest gift of all!
