Valerie comes from the Latin word 'Valere' which means to be healthy or strong.
I had called her Valerie before I knew the meaning and then I realised it was the perfect name. Little coincidences like that are one of the best parts of creating.
Her strength is emphasised in this graceful and balanced pose.
