Valeria began to draw driven by the desire to capture the poetry of everyday things:
the children and dogs' glance, the shape of the plants, the sound of the autumn dry leaves and the aroma of breakfast.
Born in Buenos Aires city, Argentina, her academic background focus initially in Fine Arts and then graduated from the University of Buenos Aires with a degree in Graphic Design & Visual Communication, where she practised as a teacher.
