Valerie Raynard is a Vancouver-born artist whose work is inspired by humanity’s dramatic relationship with nature—a relationship both ecstatic and destructive that lies at the heart of our existence. Primarily self-taught, Raynard’s artistic career has taken shape under the mentorship and teaching of Ross Penhall. With a BA in Economics from the University of British Columbia and an MSc in Development Studies from the London School of Economics, Raynard’s search to understand the world has led her back to her own creativity.
