Valentina was born in Cuneo, a small town near Turin, Italy. As a young child, she was always drawing and painting. She spent most of her time creating that she often missed her school bus because she did not want to leave her poor crayons and pencils at home. Growing up, she wanted to be a veterinarian, an archeologist or even an astronaut. However, she spent most of her free time drawing and taking painting classes. As a result, she finally decided to make her great passion into a career. Valentina attended 3 years at IED ( European Institute of Design) in Turin and studied juvenile illustration. Nowadays, she spends her days with her IMAC (a constant love and hate relationship) and her cute but fat cats.
