Valerie Hildebrand was always focused on her goal to become an artist carrying a double major in college - art, with a focus on painting, and theoretical mathematics. Her early career took her in the direction of computers, so it wasn't until she moved to Arizona in 2000 that she was inspired to create art again. A good friend suggested stained glass so she began to explore techniques for working with glass and became proficient enough that a local glass shop asked her to join their staff of teachers. She very much enjoys facilitating the learning process and watching others find that spark that inspires them.
Valerie is a "Multiple Media Artist" since she is not yet ready to settle down to just one medium for her artistic expression. She never stops searching for new techniques and inspiration so her adventures in art have taken her into the realms of glass, batik, jewelry and metalsmithing, fabric design, painting, and digital art.
