My Paintings

I love painting and I enjoy learning. I have been drawing and painting since my teenage years. I love the artists of classical school, realists, especially those who are masters of painting the light, so my own style is a kind of tribute to them.

You can find some of my works in my gallery.

All about Val

My name is Val. Some call me Valta, as I sign so my art. My partner Paul and I live on the beautiful Dutch island of Ameland. Our best friend Chester and we enjoy our sea and coastal nature, our old house and garden. I sometimes post in my blog or on my Instagram.

My Paintings

I love art and I love painting. I admire the classical school art, especially the 19th - 20th centuries' realism. Also the contemporary artists who use traditional styles inspire me much.

I exhibit some of my new works yearly (in November) at the Art Month Ameland show (Kunstmaand Ameland) within the artistic group of Amelander Kunstenaars.

You can find some of my paintings and early drawings in this gallery. They are arranged from most recent (top left) to oldest (bottom right). Click on the image for larger view. Some paintings are for sale. Please don't hesitate to contact me when you are interested.
