Welcome to the Art of Valerie (Val) Helmers

Well known especially around her adopted East Dorset and Verwood, Val Helmers can be found during the summer months May right through to September at the Bournemouth Pinewalk Art Exhibition
Val also organizes and runs the annual Verwood Art Show during September at the Heritage Centre and has been voted by visitors as " Best in Show" on three occasions.

Vals art is often derived from her love of animals - especially her beloved dogs - many people commission pet portraits and animal art commissions in the Dorset area where Val lives.

Val started painting on a daily basis when she retired in 2008, firstly with acrylics and pastel, moving on to oils and watercolour, the latter being her preferred medium, as she is often prone to say she likes a challenge.

The inspiration for Val's Art is often derived from her love of nature, animals flora and seascapes and she has completed many commissions int Dorset area where she lives. Val describes her style as " contemporary, loose and colourful".
