Valerie Timmons was born and raised in central Kentucky and received a BS in geology at Western Kentucky University and a JD at the Brandeis School of Law at the University of Louisville. Her first foray into the visual arts occurred when she received a Polaroid Swinger for her 11th birthday, and she has loved photography ever since. Most of her pictures these days are of the critters roaming and flying around her home just north of Louisville, Kentucky, where she lives with her husband and their rescue dogs.
She took some group painting lessons in 1995, then struck out on her own. When the opportunities presented themselves, she took painting, photography, art history, and arts administration courses at the university level. Her painting work was juried into the Kentucky Crafted Program in 2021.
