---Taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary---
“Musings” --- day dreaming -- this makes Jean think of Val when she gets into her creative zone--whether it be with her camera, her pencil and sketchbook, or designing a quilt. Valori has been like this since she was a little girl--always curious, seeing patterning and texture on walks or in a new environment. She was meant to be a fabric designer. We have curated a selection from her new collection, “Musings,” for Alchemy this month. Val outdid herself in this collection, in the way she has created depth in the layering of the imagery and color.
