One-Of-A-Kind Artwork by East Coast Emerging Artists

VALERIE COURSEN | Spring Mixed Media Painted Papers Collection | June 2024

Valerie Coursen is a contemporary artist who works just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in a large barn-shaped studio next to her house. Coursen is known for her distinctive color cut-outs on paper and her mixed-media paintings on canvas. Her passion for art was ignited at a young age surrounded by bold, colorful interiors and clothing as well as art lessons in a neighbors historical barn. Drawing, color and composition explorations continued to evolve in the summers as she drew for a local designer and helped create hand designed textiles and products. As a teen she took the train into Boston University for figure drawing class which led to exploring art in depth at The Rhode Island School of Design.
