Valeria enjoys creating a wide range of illustrations from portraits to editorial, nature, and food illustration. Her style could be described as a quirky, funny with loose sketchy lines mixed with vibrant watercolour with her old fashioned dip pen. She enjoys paintings with other mediums too such as oil, ink, and acrylics.
