Valerie Wiebe is an artist, singer/songwriter and designer living and working on a farm south of the town of Langham, Saskatchewan. Valerie has degrees in Music, Arts Education, Fine Arts-Painting and Fine Arts-Interior Architecture and Design. After getting married and moving to the Langham area in the late 1980s, she taught within the local public school system for 6 years before moving to live and work in Bangladesh for 3 years with Mennonite Central Committee. This experience was a pivotal moment for Valerie, propelling her to cease teaching, and to pursue instead her own creative endeavors in art and music. Her paintings are inspired by the wide swathes of sky and vast horizons that surround her home farm in all directions.
