Valerie began working in the medium of stained glass a few years ago. Valerie decided early on to contemporize the craft and Acorn Studio was born shortly after. She draws all of her own patterns and combines her designs with aesthetic choices in colour that brings a freshness to a traditional medium. Under the guise of Acorn Studio Valerie makes two dimensional art pieces as well as three dimensional pieces that can used for display or as terrariums. Inspired by geometric patterns as well as organic and fluid shapes she creates unique window hangs and geometric terrariums that feature succulent arrangements.
