About Minnie Valero: Born and raised in Córdoba, Argentina, Minnie Valero immigrated to the US with her family, and pursued a career in public high school education while obtaining master’s degrees in English and Linguistics, Counseling and Educational Policy from UCLA.  Now, she divides her time between her home in California, and her travels around the world (when allowed), painting and teaching art in French, Spanish and English.  


Artist Statement: I enjoy working with watercolor, pastel, acrylic and oils, artfully blending classical and contemporary. I let the painting choose the medium. Portraits, landscapes, figures: my divergent interests in genre stem from a deep love of the interplay of light, shadow, mood and drama, always trying to convey harmony in the composition. I am a contemporary impressionist. The challenge of doing something unusual, and sometimes working with found mediums keeps my work fresh, relevant, and ever evolving. I am now working with original pigments from Nepal. We will see where this leads. I paint with pleasure and passion. Learn more at
