Valentine Delivery - Valerie A. Brock

I create Pembroke Welsh Corgi themed paintings. Many of my pieces are created in art card form. Small pieces of sunshine to brighten the day. I enjoy painting through the seasons. Each season is unique and presents opportunities to create something special, suited just for that particular time of year. My little corgi world is a happy place, it is a pleasure to create sunny little glimpses into an imaginary world. Valentines Day presents a particularly fun theme. I love Victorian ephemera and all things old and well loved.  I try to pull in ideas from the Victorian era of romance in my paintings throughout the year but most especially at Valentines! Corgi’s & Romance… they just seem to go together.  – Valerie A. Brock

Valentines Day for me, has always been a day of celebrating the love in my life; but not just romantic love! As a child, my Mom would always have a special little gift for each of my sisters and myself as a token of how much she loved and thought about us.  This gesture gave a deeper meaning to the holiday for me and I continued the tradition with my own kids as they were growing up. I’m certain I’ll do the same with my grandkids someday.

I hope my art continues to bring smiles and joy to collectors. I’m always happy when I know it has been given as a memento of love and affection on Valentines Day! – Kim Niles
