Valentina Grigorieva, a Forest Hills artist,
paints personal reflections of her broad interests in subject matter ranging from cityscapes and landscapes, to flora and fauna. Though she works with a variety of
special techniques and archival quality media, watercolor is her favorite because “it’s free and unpredictable even though it is the most difficult medium to work with.”
Grand Rapids’ natural surroundings lure Valentina into sketching and painting. The invitation may be a humble sunflower, a sunrise fogged by morning mists, or reflections in downtown street puddles after rain. Tucked among the elements of her pictures are hints of poetry, mood, and
music inspired by extensive travel which enriched her cultural perspective on life.
She loves to paint on location, but when under time pressure she will make a quick sketch for the future painting and take a photo so that the viewers can experience the emotions of the painting’s captured moment through its blend of subject, colors, shapes, and light.
Valentina is a member of Grand Valley Artists and River Town Artists of Grand Rapids, MI. Her work has been successfully
exhibited at several galleries and shows such as West Michigan Regional Art Competition (Lowell), Artprize, and arts guild group exhibit at Wyoming Gallery.
Solo exhibits have included:
- Dominican Center Marywood Art Gallery
- Mercy Health Saint Mary’s Campus Art Gallery
- Cascade Library Art Gallery
- St Cecilia Music Society – Terryberry Gallery
