Artist Statement

Valerie Deveraux

The stone is my Guru, sculpting my spiritual path.

As I work with the stone I enter into a collaboration with the essence of the medium. I become the alchemist aiding and yet allowing the form to take shape without forcing or demanding it to come into being.

For me art is a form of storytelling, and it is through our stories that we find connection with one another, When I explore my relationship with my inner voice my stories are expressed through my art. Then my stories find resonance with the stories of others.

My art is a reflection of and a glimpse inside my spiritual journey. The forms I sculpt are manifestations of the myths, metaphors and messengers I’ve met on my path. Through sculpture and these shared stories, I hope to inspire others to listen to their inner voice.
