Valerie Jacobs

My art revolves around thoughtfully cultivated and carefully tended collection of symbols.  Some are obvious, even simplistic in their implications; others more obscure and most have political undertones generally pertaining to violence and war.  Some will have a meditative quality that personalizes the imagery and lends gravity to the politics.
