Today, Valerie Weller answers the 101010 Project question.

Valerie’s Etsy store
Website (launching soon)
Years in Business: 30 years in the business of art and graphic design.
The Question #8: Who is that one person you would like to sit and talk with about your business?
If we are referring to the here and now…I’d love to sit down and chat with Flora Bowley and Kelly Rae Roberts together. I’ve been influenced by both of these dynamic women through several recent courses I’ve taken, that a chat would be invaluable. I’d be most interested in learning more about Flora’s business story, and how she was able to position herself to teach, create, and travel as the foundation of what she does. With Kelly, I’d be most interested in discussing my art direction and her thoughts on my “art transition” in business. Between both of these ladies, I know I’d gather some very fruitful advice.
And of course… (this is how my mind thinks…) if we are talking about a person that has passed, I’d be way excited to speak to Sergeant, Sorolla, or Cezanne about painting and color. Just have to cover all bases.
Valerie’s current projects: My website www.valerieweller.com (projected launch- July) and an online watercolor e-course (in-process-stay tuned to blog posts for launch date)
