Valerie Choo is a Canadian Chinese Landscape Painter and Emerging Artist who recently graduated with a BFA from York University. Growing up in a Christian household, she draws inspiration from her faith and her exploration of different places where animals and nature can be found. In her free time, she likes to binge on Netflix, read, and go on new adventures (both fictional and in real life).
Greatly influenced by her religious upbringing and fascination for landscapes and animals, her work primarily depicts realist-impressionist landscapes, occasionally featuring animals and figures inspired by her adventures her faith-based awe of Creation. Valerie believes that there is much to be seen in this world and painting scenes inspired by such beauty brings her great joy and peace. She hopes to show and evoke those feelings of joy and wonder within her work while also personally reflecting on the mastery of God’s craftsmanship.
