Artist and graphic designer Valentina Harper (formerly Ramos) grew up in Caracas, Venezuela. As a child Valentina enjoyed drawing, coloring, and painting, and she spent many hours creating and dreaming up images. Later she came to the United States with $200 in her pocket, no ability to speak the English language, and a mindful of dreams that are all coming true.
After getting a degree in graphic design and working 15 years as a graphic designer, Valentina started toying with the idea of selling some of her paintings. She suddenly discovered a new life as a professional artist, and Valentina Design was born: her world of fantasies and dreams; where her uplifting drawings and designs took shape.
In her Nashville studio, this creative artist spends countless happy hours playing with her paints and her Rapidograph pens. She enjoys working with different materials, but black ink is one of the mediums you will always find in her original prints, paintings and drawings. Her love for artworks with little intricate details is a signature of her own drawing style.
