Valerie Watts

Liverpool born, art and music have always been in my life.

After studying at Southport College of Art, music took over. My career has been that of a professional classical singer and teacher, singing leading opera roles, alongside private teaching, including the tenor Russell Watson. I have also held roles as a vocal tutor at Edgehill University and for the Southport BTECH Performers Course.

I never stopped drawing and painting, but lockdown gave me the opportunity to return to this passion.

Art has always been in my family, my mother was a gifted artist and my cousin Gary Daly of the band China Crisis is an artist too and has exhibited his work.
