June 8 (note second Monday)
Valerie describes herself as "an architect and artist who creates fiber art inspired by realistic and abstract imagery of maps." She is fascinated by the language of lines, shapes and pattern -- she is drawn to the way that maps use symbols (such as points, lines, pattern, and color) to convey information. Since she was a child, she has spent hours pouring over maps, intrigued by their beauty. Currently, Valerie teaches architectural design classes at Florida, A&M University's School of Architecture.
