About the Artist
Valerie imbues her art with more than unique designs and world-class craftsmanship. In her own words:
"We only use animals taken for food in our work. This trade is a natural recycling and a beautiful way to honor these animals lives and spirits forever. The creation of my bags is done respectfully and with deep gratitude to all those who've given up themselves to us.
I practice Native American traditions of honoring the earth and all her children and work closely with each animals spirit to bring forth the most beautiful, long lasting creations. I am proud to pursue excellence in the world's true oldest profession!"
