Fibre Art | Born France
Lives and works in West Yorkshire
Valerie Wartelle is a contemporary fibre artist based in West Yorkshire. Valerie works with a combination of fibres, threads, textiles and print elements to create artfelt pieces inspired by land, sea and sky scapes.
Brought up in France and French Polynesia, Valerie came to the UK to study Textile Design. After working in the fashion industry and local government, Valerie recently returned to her first love of constructed textiles, developing a refined and distinctive feel to her felt work. Valerie’s artwork creates ephemeral moments and moods that yet will feel familiar – an invitation to amble into our own serenity.
