About

Valeria is an illustrator and pattern designer.

She was born and grew up in Italy. She loves her country but, being very curious, likes to travel all over the world. She has liked drawing ever since she was able to hold a pencil, and on all her travels, she sketches everything that inspires her. Now she splits her time between Italy and New york City.

After earning her degree in Architecture, she specialized in illustration in Milan and decided to make Illustration her job. Valeria has worked with many publishing houses and in 2013, 2014 and 2018 was selected for the Italian Illustrator Annual. She is a proud student of pattern designer Bonnie Christine and she completed her Immersion Course in 2018.

Most of the time, Valeria draws digitally, but she uses traditional media now and then. She loves the smell of colored pencils and she likes to create something new every time.
