Valerie McArdell

The proprietor of Oriel is also one of the gallery’s contributors. Valerie has worked in a number of different mediums over the years and is forever developing her style.

Her quirky interpretations of local scenes have proven highly popular, and she often has requests to product further images showing her latest trademark style of squashed and slanting buildings and cheerful bright colours.

Her pictures often have a humorous focus that the locals and visitors can recognize and appreciate.
