Born in White Plains, NY

Lives & works in Fort Lauderdale, FL.


 VALERA is a Fort Lauderdale based, emerging artist working in many mediums ranging from painting to mixed media and photography. While transcending from one medium to another a string of genuineness and honesty is captured within the figures and subjects. If anything is an aim at all it is to capture pure essence in whatever raw form it is experienced.
