Lily & Val

Chalk artist
Pittsburgh, PA

“My products are unique because they capture and preserve chalk art—an art form that is considered temporary. It is rewarding to create pretty designs that are in actuality nothing more than dust on a surface. I think that's very special.”

Taking something beautiful and fleeting and making it into something beautiful and permanent: that’s what Valerie has accomplished with her patented (not really but you get it) method of creating chalkboard art, then preserving it with acrylic. What started as a family sign in her own kitchen turned a whole line of notecards and prints with the unmistakable quality of a delightfully chalked board. And not a smudge in sight.
