Valerie Hegarty

Many of you may be wondering who this all important "Valerie Hegarty" is. Well I'll tell you the story. It was a cold autumn day at school. I was busy working on my art project when I came across the artist Valerie Hegarty. With the name in common (middle name) I decided to check her out after all she is my name sake :)
When I first saw her work I fell in love. I don't even know how to describe it..... It's just amazing!! My theme is nature and her work fitted my theme perfectly. In fact I'm annoyed that I didn't come across her work sooner rather than later. Her work involves many frames and pieces of work that she's made to look decayed. Here are a few of her pieces:

For Valerie Hegarty, the joy of her work lies in the destruction rather than the making. In some of her pieces Valerie Hegarty theatrically reconstructs masterpieces made from foam-core, paper and wood.

Her style of work may not be everyone's 'cup of tea' but I like it at least. I'm not trying to convince any of you to like her work I just wanted to share this artist with you so that you can learn a bit about the artist and also a bit about me and what I like :)
