My name’s Valery and I live in Florence, Italy. I’m a professional artist with over 15 years of experience. I mastered my craft through time at the School of Arts in Latvia, continued in England and settled in Florence at the Repin Academy. My work has appeared in various exhibitions and private collections around Europe, including my most recent solo exhibition “Protagonsti dell Arte” held at Bologna’s Sant’Isaia Gallery in 2018.

I have been running art classes for several years, inspiring and teaching students of all ages to create their own landscape studies and compositions. I’d like to help more people to discover the beauty of Florence through the artist’s eye with this open-air painting workshop. Giving you the chance to take a true piece of Florence home with you, created by your own brush strokes.

We decided to add this special moment in our holidays. Sadly that morning it was raining cats and dogs, we changed meeting point but everything turned out really good. We were in this beautiful piazza with amazing colours. The rain didn't stop us paiting, with the help of Valeria, our 2 amazing artpieces. Valeria helped us the whole way and showed us some tricks. I would recommend this experience to everyone!

Really wonderful experience with great teachers Valerija and Axel. The lesson is well structured and the tutors are really attentive. They clearly are passionate about what they do, they convey this by helping you improve your confidence and style with the brush. I already recommended this to all of my friends!!
