Valerie Constantino is a visual artist and writer, working with a range of traditional and contemporary hybrid art forms. Her seminal studies in textiles led to broad investigations on the subject of materiality and the malleable intersections of time, matter and identity. These considerations prompted further research regarding the intricate relationships between global economies, societal systems and environmental degradation. An exhibiting artist and published writer, Constantino has received a number of notable awards in support of her interdisciplinary work. She holds a MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and has taught and lectured at a number of academic institutions. She currently lives and works in northern California.
