Valerie Collymore of Bellvue, Washington
LPAPA’s July 2021 Artist Member of the Month
“Of the many contemporary plein air artist that I know, Valerie Collymore is the most devoted proponent of true French Impressionism. Her work idealizes the theme of everyday, ordinary scenes while benefiting from such techniques and approaches as broken color, loose, choppy brushstroke, and most importantly, a true and convincing effect of fluid, natural sunlight. She would be right at home next to works by Monet, Sisley, and Pissarro.”
–Jean Stern, Executive Director, The Irvine Museum Collection at the University of California, Irvine
