Hello, My Name Is Virginia Valère
Born into a family of artists from several generations, Virginia has always been surrounded by various talents.
From theater to painting, through singing, dancing, and more, Virginia’s childhood made her the women and the artist she is today.One who is not afraid to show a style, her style.
She likes to mix styles and worlds that are often diametrically opposed.
After having obtained a special dispensation to attend art classes reserved for students at the end of their studies, when she was only 12 years old, she was subsequently admitted without competition in one of the most prestigious schools of Art in Paris, Ecole Boule, to graduate out few years later.
Followed a few years spent in the family business, in charge of the artistic part, Virginia quickly turned back to her first love, painting and her lifelong passion of skull sculptures.
