Valerie C. Browne
Valerie Browne primarily devotes her practice to portraiture, figurative, and still life painting. Many of her works are comprised of realistically-rendered figures derived from self-portraiture, as well as vibrant, reflective foils and deflated balloons. She is fascinated by and makes use of laborious layering techniques and direct observation to create her still life paintings. Valerie is currently a senior at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois where she is pursuing her Bachelors in Fine Arts with a focus in painting and drawing. Originally from Spring Grove, Illinois, she currently resides and works in Chicago. Her work will be included in the Fall 2017 BFA Exhibition at SAIC and will be graduating in December of 2017.
