The VSA studio creates paintings that are informed by a love for spatial constructs. Reciprocally Valerie’s architecture is informed by a painterly and sculptural aspect.  The playfulness of her built forms is seen again here.  Schweitzer is greatly inspired by the Jewish concept that every visual detail of the world has a divine Source.

Schweitzer’s art has been on exhibit at the two main cultural hubs of Westport , Connecticut– the Westport Art Center and the Westport Library.  At the public library she had a large solo show (2011), entitled Abstractions.  VSA constructs atmospheres where painitngs and murals are integrated with the architecture. This recalls the spirit of total design that dates as far back as Giotto and earlier.  Schweitzer has been painting since childhood. She studied art formally at Princeton University as an undergraduate, and later at The New York Academy of Art in 1991 and 1999.
