Valeria grew up in the South town on the river coast. Surrounded by specific steppe nature and bright local culture, she had a little explorer childhood.
Her favourite books as a child were Geographic Atlas and Big Illustrated Encyclopaedia, and her dream to discover the World led her into the fascinating world of illustration, travels and imagination. After all, every new project is a thrilling adventure!
Currently based in sunny Turkey, Valeria’s great inspiration are animals, quirky creatures (like her loyal assistant pug George) and boundless world of characters, with a good pinch of humour surely!
