Val Rossman has been creating drawings and paintings in her studio in Philadelphia for the last 25 years.  Her work has gone through various stages, however, her wonderful sense of color combined with a lyrical and often whimsical mentality have always infused her drawings with a lush  and personal aura.  The combination of rich and unexpected hues and gestures with sometimes questioning formats give the work an unforgettable presence.
