Biography:
Valerie Hinz (b. 1956) Valerie lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and has been a professional artist, working in television since 1979. In 2000, she left her job with the CTV affiliate to paint full time. One of her earlier commercial exhibitions was with the U.S. Arabian National Horse Show in Louisville, KY. There, she took a tour of Churchill Downs, where she viewed an exhibit of the works by the American Academy of Equine Art for the first time. She eagerly submitted work to future AAEA shows, where within two years, she gratefully accepted the 1992 Gordon Barton Memorial Award for Best in Show. Valerie attributes the AAEA for giving her the start she needed in the equine art world. The publicity received from her wins through the AAEA juried exhibitions helped her to become visible to the galleries that represent her today.

Valerie rarely chooses to do commissions, but accepted to do so for the 1999 Queen's Plate winner for Woodbine Race Track in Toronto, Canada. She was the official artist for 2003 Breeders' Cup at Santa Anita, California.
