Artist Profile

VAL BLUNDELL

MORE ABOUT VAL

I was born in Crewe where all of my family were involved in the railways, in one way or another. My grandfather was a steam engine driver. All of my working life has been in education. Along the way I have taught all of the age ranges from playgroup to university students. My greatest love was the Access course.

When introducing myself I used to say ‘I am not an artist’ but relatively recently I have realised that is not true. We are all made in the image of God and therefore we are, by our very nature, creative.

This does not mean that I have to be the same kind of artist as John! To be honest, I find picking up a paintbrush quite scary.

I do enjoy playing with Brusho inks, because you cannot predict how it will turn out. Of late, I have been enjoying making collages.
