Hi, I'm Valentina!
I was born in 1988 in Milan, where I still live and work.
I grew up collecting fairy tales, Pitzorno stories and Disney characters,especially fascinated by illustrations. Thanks to my mother, a teacher in an art school, I started picking up the pencil from an early age in the company of a kitten, Dolly, who then timidly entered many of my illustrations.
I trained following my first real aspiration: first at the Art School and then at the European Institute of Design (IED), specializing in Illustration and Animation. I followed various illustration courses always trying to improve myself, including the illustration school in Sarmede, held by internationally renowned artists.
Some internships, including an experience in the field of graphics and illustration at the Ghisetti & Corvi Publishing House, then the job arrived immediately after finishing her studies: Illustrator and Graphic Designer in a large communication company.
I also dedicate myself as a freelance illustrator, drawing especially for children aged 0-10, preferably with digital techniques. I also dedicate myself to custom illustrations upon request.
Not only illustration and graphics, I also found space for photography.
