Less of a "what", and more of a "who"!
Boom Cookie is an Artist influenced by Cartoons, Fine Art, and Life Experience.
... And hey, that's me, and my real name is Valerie.
Thank you for coming to my Studio website!
I take pride in being a multi-generational working woman and "geek", doing what I Love. (My family consists of many Artists, Musicians, Writers, Directors, Producers, and Teachers.) From the 'burbs of Boston to the Bay Area to LA, I've been a practicing the entire way.
Once upon a time, "Boom Cookie" was my gamertag for video games; you can still find me on many platforms and websites if you search for it.
I really liked the moniker, and in 2007 I adopted "Boom Cookie" as a business name when I started my professional career. I have successfully grown my art business using this name ever since.
For over a decade, folks have hired me for animation and other creative projects as a Storyboard Artist, Children's Book Illustrator, Character Designer, Prop Designer, Color Stylist, Editor, Marketer, Copy Writer, Consultant/Influencer, and more.
In 2019 I started connecting directly with students and their families in the Los Angeles and Glendale Unified School Districts.
