Greer Valley - visual artist
Greer graduated from the University of Cape Town in 2005 with a degree in Architecture and has since worked in the Architecture and Urban Design industries in South Africa and abroad. She also spent much time working within social development agencies using visual arts as a platform to inspire change and awareness amongst youth. It was through this work that she was inspired to create 'Hands On' – an organisation providing artist-led workshops to youth development agencies and NGOs. Through ‘Hands On’ she collaborates with other artists, poets and writers to create work with a strong social message. Her individual work is mostly large format charcoal, pastel, oil and collage drawings on canvas. She also does freelance photographic and design work.
