Valentyna Crane follows Contemporary Impressionism; her style focuses on the effects of changing light and weather and concentrates on the feelings of moving air and the emotions of each particular scene.

Valentyna graduated from one of the oldest art schools (founded in 1922) in the territory of former USSR. She also holds Masters Degree in Architecture and Landscape Design. Yet Valentyna is also an Australian artist, who re-discovered the techniques and knowledge she learned in a very different place, in the context of the nature, history and social fabric of Australia. After marrying and raising a family, she returned to her fine art practice, actively exhibiting and participating in a local art world.
