Hi, I’m Valerie! I work as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator based in Rhode Island, with projects spanning throughout North America.

In the recent past, I worked as a Graphic Designer at Todd Oldham Studio, helping create kids’ craft brands like Kid Made Modern, Smarts & Crafts, and Camp Plaid, and making books, animations, art products, and textiles. While at the studio, we’ve collaborated with clients from Phaidon and the MoMA, to Target and Walmart.

I’ve worked in the realms of kid’s toys and craft kits, book publishing, web based animations, household goods, and a few other design disciplines for about 6 years.

No matter what project I’m working on, I always aim to make sure there’s an element of childlike expression and joy within it.
In 2023, I opened up Snailerie.co, a slow-and-steady creative studio & stationery shop. I release collections every season or so, and share that progress on my instagram.
