The Illustrator


Valeria Issa

was born in Rome, Italy but lived in a tiny village nearby for most of her childhood. She studied Character Animation and Digital Illustration at Nemo NT Academy of Digital Arts in Florence. She moved to London straight after graduating, and realised she wanted to pursue her interest in illustration.

After all, she couldn’t stay away from her pencils and sketchbooks!

She loves portraying children and animals in humorous situations and using bright and captivating colours.She takes inspiration from everything and everywhere around her, in that unconventional way that defines her style and creativeness.

She loves chocolate and cats, messy doodles and when it rains at night. When she is not working she can be found writing short stories, watching horror movies and trying new recipes in the kitchen.
