Hearts Desire Designs by Valerie

Valerie Unruh enjoys living by the ocean and rain forests—perfect places to find the flora, fauna and fairies that she explores in her work. “Nature Spirits” adorn many of her pieces. Valerie began her artistic career in Toronto, Ontario, inspired by her grandmother who was an accomplished ceramic artist. Studying at Ontario College of Arts, she then trained and worked as a florist in Toronto, later moving to Vancouver. Inspired by nature and the elements, her art and jewellery give form to her love of natural, positive energy, conveying to us the importance of nature in our lives.
