Valerie Light Anderson has traveled and lived in Texas, North Dakota, Japan and Nebraska.  She lives and works in Omaha, Nebraska where she has nurtured a fondness of the Midwest.  Light Anderson holds a BFA from the University of Nebraska, at Omaha.  She is a practicing oil painter whose subjects include still life, interior, landscape and figure.  Her works have been exhibited in the Atlanta, Dallas, Sioux City and Omaha areas, and are held in private and corporate collections across the country.  She explains:

I study natural light and strive to evoke thought, joy, and sometimes awe, at the affect light has on a moment in time.  I see each piece as a portrait or a poem one returns to again and again.” 

Valerie has a studio in the Hot Shops Art Center in Omaha, and can be found on the second floor, in Studio 204.  Her portfolio includes pieces that are part of private and corporate collections, pieces created on commission, and pieces currently available for sale.  If you see something here you like, please contact Valerie to arrange purchase or to discuss a future commission.
