Biography

Valerie Laws is world-infamous for spray-painting quantum physics poetry onto live sheep in her Arts Council-funded QUANTUM SHEEP project. She is a Northumbrian poet, performer, crime & comedy novelist, playwright and sci-art installation specialist.

Her 13 published books include poetry (including 4 full collections), crime & comedy fiction, language text books, and drama.

Valerie has degrees in Mathematics/Theoretical Physics, also in English, and an MA(Creative Writing). She was disabled in a car crash 28 years ago but unlike the two cars, was not written off! She's an obsessive swimmer and snorkeler, a keen wildlife spotter, and loves to travel worldwide.

She has written 12 commissioned plays for stage and BBC radio. She's won many prizes and awards, eg twice a prizewinner in National Poetry competition.

Valerie devises new forms of poetry, science-themed poetry installations and commissions including the infamous Quantum Sheep. Another of her random physics haiku was commissioned by BBC2 TV for Why Poetry Matters, with Griff Rhys Jones, and live at Royal Festival Hall, London. That one was sprayed onto beach balls and activated in water.
