Art Cards by Valerie

Valerie Gilbert- Artist

I was born in Edmonton, Alberta and moved to Vancouver in my early teens. Over the years I have dabbled in various crafts, in fact, I owned a chocolate shop/handcrafted gift store for over 10 years. While living in Australia, I wanted something to do with my hands that didn’t take a lot of room (that’s a laugh)! While holidaying back in Canada I found an iris folding kit and the rest is history. I returned to Canada in 2009 and started card making on an almost full time basis. I now create a number of my own designs, often from customer requests. I am able to import papers from around the world and enjoy creating unique, one-of-a-kind cards and framed art.
