Valerie Dunne's work captures everyday events and objects and transforms them into a piece of art. "My work is primarily black & white and self printed. When I involve color, it is digitally based, or Polaroid transfer and obviously manipulated." Dunne has a background graphic design and photography background from Genesee Community College and has also studied photography at Buffalo State College, where she is a candidate for a Bachelor of Fine Arts. Her experiences include working as the Staff Photographer for Artvoice and Extreme Magazine from 1990-199 , as an Arts and Crafts Instructor at the Boys' and Girls' Camp of Boston Inc. in 1994 and 1995, and as the Photographic Printer at Delaware Camera & Video from 1989-1993. From 1996-1999 she also worked with Bark Loud Productions, a business created to encompass freelance photography contracts and sales of photographs through galleries and festivals.  She has photographed several CD packages and taken countless promotional portraits. Dunne exhibited in 1997 at the Topic Café, a solo exhibition entitled "'til Now," and at the Buffalo Arts Studio's WNY Women's Forum. Other exhibitions include "In Western New York" at the Albright-Knox in 1996, 3B 's Café "Scene & Heard" solo exhibition, and various student exhibitions at the Upton Gallery at Buffalo State College.
