Valentina Belloni


I was born on the 7th of november 1986 in Cuneo, a city near Turin, Italy. As a young child, I was always drawing and painting and after my graduation I finally decided to make my great passion into a career. I attended a three years post diploma degree, with a master of Illustration, at the IED of Turin, Italy, where I graduated in July 2008. During this experience I built up my artist’s skills, with a regardful eye to the juvenile illustration market. In 2010 I became part of the freelance Illustrators represented by the MB Artists of New York (, having the possibility to work with several important publishers based in Europe, Usa and Asia. I love my job not only because I can draw all day long (most of the time wearing very ugly pajamas!), but also because it allows me to travel a lot and I can also live where I like most. It makes me feel free and happy… Who knows where I’ll be when I’m an old illustrator granny?
