Valentina Hotz holds Master’s degrees with Honours in the Fine Art and Architecture. Over the last 25 years, she has held many successful solo exhibitions in Canada, USA, South Africa and Israel. She also designed collectible coin for the Royal Canadian Mint and had several large mural painting commissions. Her works are in many private collections in South Africa, Canada, USA, UK, France and on the cover of several books.
Valentina’s style can be described as Magic Realism, where reality and dreams intertwine. In the manner of Leonor Fini, Paul Delvaux and Rene Magritte, she presents a world that is recognizably our own, yet into this realistic world are introduced elements that derive from imagination, dreams and mythology.
Valentina lives in Toronto with her husband and daughter.
She is a member of the Women’s Art Association of Canada.
