Which comes first for you? Words or pictures? In this anthology of paintings and their poems, the artist and poet, Valerie Losell invites you to start with either and enhance your enjoyment of both. Her watercolours and pastels and the poems that deepen their meaning will challenge you to see the world with sometimes a little more "honey," sometimes more "vinegar."

Holding Up The Sky celebrates moments of dignity in our human journey, reminds us of our profound bonds with the natural world and our duty to it as our home. These paintings and their poems will inspire and delight you.

About the Author

The magic inherent in making art has played a central role in recovery for Valerie. Eight years on from a career-ending brain and spinal cord injury, Valerie now uses "was" for teacher and "is" for artist. Working in watercolour and pastel and writing poetry inspired by that art has helped her in the slow process of reframing the unhelpful and allowing space for new ways of being to emerge.

Beyond the poetry and paintings, she offers this collection as inspiration to anyone who hopes for a way forward when life throws you a curve.
