My name is Quwatha Valentine. I was born on Valentine's Day in Winston-Salem, NC. I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina with a major in math and minor in physics with art as my elective subject. I am a retired Software Engineer living in beautiful Sun City Summerlin, Las Vegas, NV. I arrived here via VA, TX and CA. I worked for NASA's space program for 10 years and later for Litton Data Systems in the defense industry as a software engineer.

I have studied many different painting techniques using different mediums, being self-taught through many books, video tapes and DVDs. Since retirement in 1999 I have resumed my painting full time. I have taken workshops and seminars from prominent portrait artists, learning the techniques of the Old Masters. I love painting landscapes, seascapes and portraits, with portraits being my first love. I have done many commissioned portraits and other commissioned work.

I paint portraits from life or from photos. I like to get to know the personality of my subject; therefore, when working from photos I require several different poses with photos taken by me or the client.

My portraits are painted realistically with a 'painterly' touch. I believe that God has given us so much beauty in reality and I like to combine that with a little artistic license. I have recently been devoting most of my time to graphite drawing. Drawings which are created with just light and shadow are so dramatic. Black and white drawings offer the viewer a reprieve from the constant world of color.

I use only the finest archival quality canvases and oil paints.

Sit back, relax with your favorite beverage and take a journey through my galleries.
