Patterson’s work is...
very important and extremely poignant for the times we live in and for future generations. Her body of work not only chronicles her life, but the world that we all live in. Her gift for teaching is truly mastered through an innate ability to exacerbate the coldness of the world around her while illustrating the beauty of the soul.” -Tim Serviss- Artist

“The commentary, the vibrancy and the skill! There’s no one like you Valerie!” -Marina Irwin Hadley - Monkdogz Urban Art NYC
“Valerie Patterson says what we all know to be true in our souls. Her contribution to all, is what many of us think and it is a profound statement that feels to be on the tip of our tongues. She is the mind of today and I will say it loudly.” - Kathy Ostman-Magnusen - Artist
