Born in 1967, Valérie Sonnier graduated from the Beaux-Arts de Paris in 1993.
In 2003, she was appointed professor of drawing and morphology.

Using a variety of media - drawing, painting, photography and super8 film - Valérie Sonnier unfolds a universe exploring the links between intimate memories and the collective memory of childhood, notions of presence and absence, and ghostly apparitions. A series of her photographs at the Galerie Huguier is part of the school's photographic collection. His solo exhibition Tout dit dans l'infini quelque chose à quelqu'un, evoking Victor Hugo's links with spiritualism, was held in the writer's house in Paris and was part of the contemporary art programme for Nuit Blanche 2022.

A monograph was recently published in the Gratitudes collection by Éditions des Beaux-Arts de Paris. She is represented by the Nadja Vilenne gallery in Belgium, and the Dilecta gallery devoted a solo exhibition to her in 2023.
She was awarded the Prix Château Kirwan at the BAD+ fair in Bordeaux in 2024.
