Sculpture Description

Valerie Smith-Lane is a Newcastle born artist who paints and creates sculptures in many mixed media forms with a vast inspiration base. She currently works as a tattoo artist, choosing the canvas of the human skin on which to create her artwork. ‘Jumble’ illustrates that no matter what, we are all made up of an assortment of things and that so many entities influence who we are. Our thoughts, behaviours and appearance are formed by our ancestors, heritage, culture, society, surroundings and people’s influences on us. Collaboration and equality can result in an outstanding outcome.
