NSS - Professional member of the National Sculpture Society.
Vala is an artist who passionately and relentlessly seeks to create artworks that show her dedication to excellence. Her classical training in Europe is
reflected in her art. Her figurative bronze sculptures and oil paintings are noted for their depth of expression and emotion. The high quality of her art
has earned her great respect among art appreciators. 2001 Vala rekindled her interest in sculpting with clay after solely painting with oil for seven years.
Her inspiration derives from her observation of life.
Even the most mundane circumstance we find ourselves in daily will spark an idea. The Flemish artist Vermeer would paint the simple act of pouring milk, elevating
it to a moment worth remembering for eternity, in a similar way Vala will look at a moment usually passed by as moment worth noticing.
She sculpts and paints in her studio in Cave Creek AZ, northside of Scottsdale. All her sculptures are cast in bronze.
