Hi there! Thanks for stopping by.
I'm Chantal Valerie, a writer and self-taught illustrator with a love for playful animal characters and bold colours. My illustrations are all hand-drawn and these days I mostly work with coloured pencils.
Born and raised in Germany, I have lived in Australia, the UK and Morocco and since 2012, call Amsterdam home.
While living in the UK, I studied children’s literature and creative writing, and
I am now pursuing a career as a children’s book author and illustrator. I am currently working on my first picture book.
