Dog Portraits by Valerie Davide

After retiring to North Cornwall, Valerie Davide turned her attention to drawing following a career as a counselor. She had often used art therapy in her sessions and found it was beneficial to her patients as well fulfilling for herself. Born in 1938, her fluid work sees her lines ebb and flow across the paper, yet the eyes are the focal point of all her work. Her charcoal drawings created using the fewest lines possible are a spontaneous outpouring of energy and result in images which are both distinctive and full of life.  Here are some of our favorites…
