Valerie Jenkins

Valerie Jenkins was born in San Francisco in 1957. She joined Creativity Explored’s studio in 2001.

Jenkins works predominately with watercolors, ink, and colored pencils on paper. The subject matter of her art is varied but she usually prefers to draw from photographs. Sometimes she adds letters, words or numbers as captions in her drawings, which are colored in with pencils and watercolors. When Jenkins talks, it is as if she is speaking in the form of a poem. This lyrical quality translates to the interesting lines of her drawings.

Valerie Jenkins’ work was chosen to adorn a limited edition pillow by CB2, our community arts partner, in 2011.
