Collection: Valerie Teng
The works of artist, Valerie Teng, focuses mainly on the simplicity of things and their meaning. She draws inspiration from nature and interprets these by means of serene and dream-like images which are representative of her work.
Highlighting also her Chinese background, subjects used are those that depict luck. With acrylic as her main medium, she has developed a technique wherein layers are created to manipulate opacity, thereby giving the impression as if the artwork was done in watercolor.
As a graduate of Fine Arts from the College of the Holy Spirit, Val represents women artists with positive messages to convey. She is also a founding member of Smittens (2016-present), a startup catering to kids with artistic potential. Her main role in the company is the artistic lead/instructor. She believes that creativity leads to success and it needs to be nurtured at an early age.
