Du Val Art

Artist directory :: Du Val Art

I love the challenge of getting a sense of a person or critter onto a canvas. Of course the physical representation is important, but really, I want to feel an emotionality from a painting. That is what I aim for.

Du Val Art


Elizabeth H Du Val 
As a professional ballet dancer, I felt drawn by the expressiveness of line and movement. When I retired, I cast about for another way to illustrate those images. I fell into visual art when I was asked to illustrate a Pilates book with drawings of animals doing their namesake exercises. That experience led me to enroll in some classes at the Art Students' League in NYC, and I fell in love with the rich colors and possibilities of oil. Hugo Bastidas and Oldrich Teply were among my inspiring teachers, as later, was David Tanner in VA.
