Valerie Shepherd SWA


Valerie is a Sculpter, Painter and Printmaker. Her sculptural works are mostly in clay, however she also stone carves.

Her inspirations come from ancient art forms and archaeology, also her love of natural structures and through observing her grandchildren in play and their interactive relationships.

Most of her work is figurative - human or animal and bird forms, but occasionally abstract.

The majority of her work is coil or slab formed and then kiln fired to stoneware temperatures, for garden use, and on occasions cast in bronze resin or cast stone. She carries her love of colour, as a painter, through to sculpture by the use of Raku and stonware glazes.

Valerie lives in Poling, near Arundel in West Sussex. Please contact by telephone, 01903 883304 or e-mail
