For another new face!
SAQA member, Valerie Wilson of Winnipeg, MB, is our newest Regional Co-Rep for SAQA Western Canada (focusing on SK/MB area). We had the pleasure of meeting her recently at Quilt Canada in Lethbridge, and then I was able to speak with her at length by telephone just prior to her accepting this volunteer post. Coleen and I are looking forward to working with her over the next year or two.
I've asked Val to give us a bit of personal info about herself, and about her artistic journey...and a photo for posting in the right side-bar of this blog. Currently...that's Val's lovely contribution to the 2015 SAQA Benefit Auction: "Bliss". She is known for her portraiture and her depictions of the natural world.
Please welcome Val -- and stay tuned for an update so you can get to know her better!
