Valerie Wahna

Grand Rapids, MI, United States

As the owner of a design studio and a multi-disciplinary artist, I’ve made it a priority to incorporate my past fine arts and corporate worlds together using new techniques and innovative materials. The years since receiving my degree in printmaking and working as a Creative Store Design Manager have brought me the unique opportunity to put my artistic training and corporate experience to work in a wide variety of areas. After teaching at Kent State, working in advertising, and managing retail design teams, I’m currently refocused on teaching and developing VW Design Studio to focus on public art. Through work with Downtown Grand Rapids Inc., I’ve been able to both help support public art in Grand Rapids and participate as a public artist. I currently live, teacher, and create art in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
