Bronwen Valentine is an architect and mom by day and an artist and dancer when time allows. She has been painting in different styles and mediums on and off for years... always searching for her style. She recently almost died in a terrible car crash and was badly injured with lingering brain trauma. Part of her healing process has been to focus on painting. She combines bright flowing textured acrylic paint colors with hand done precision design.
She very much enjoys painting in rainbow colors and supports what the rainbow represents in our culture. She hopes her work creates a feeling of love, pride, and community.
