While studying Valeria has participated in group exhibitions and fairs in Ukraine and Europe.
Currently she is staying in Paris, continuing her artistic practice and volunteering. Valeriia is involved in several art projects in support of Ukraine in Munich, Paris and Barcelona. Valeriia works with themes of finding identity, people's awareness of themself and their place, as well as physicality and ephemerality.
Botanical or zoomorphic forms and textures are often used in the works as a constant mention of unity with nature and purity of perception in childhood. Recently she has been working with gesso on wooden panels, this technique has long been used to create icons. It requires the preparation of a plane for painting and refers to the origins of these new digital times.
