Hi, I’m Valerie. I’m an illustrator and former graphic designer with a passion for humorous, weird, and quirky illustration, especially for children’s publishing.

I love working with colored pencils, water-soluble crayons, Procreate and Photoshop, and telling silly stories.

I’ve taken some amazing illustration and storytelling classes with Lilla Rogers at Make Art That Sells; the Society of Visual Storytelling, run by Will Terry, Jake Parker, and Lee White; and Arree Chung’s Storyteller Academy.
