Hi there!
I'm Val and I grew up in Brooklyn but was born in a small city in Ukraine.
I wanted to be an artist from a young age and dreamed of being a cartoonist, a tattoo artist, and vet.
I fell in love with graphic design after wanting to create album cover designs in high school.
My goal is to learn about Motion Graphics and After Effects to bring life to my illustrations.
I am currently living in beautiful Portland, OR with my boyfriend and two cats.

I'm happiest when:
I'm lifting at my local gym, Ironside Training
I'm zoning out with a good podcast. Hey Riddle Riddle, Lopriore Podcast, LPOTL, and Ear Hustle to name a few.
I'm spending time with the people I love.
