Mapping the Arts in Easthampton, Southampton, & Westhampton


Valerie Ann McQuillan


Botannicals, landscapes

Images that speak to me are what I like to paint, from local landscapes, vacation spots, flowers, still lifes. Subjects can change, but I must have a connection to the beauty or interesting aspect of the image.

My art education consists of a BFA from UMass/Amherst and a AA from Holyoke Community College, as well as numerous workshops and classes in many different art media.
