Boom Cookie is an Artist with a background in Cartoons and Fine Art.
... And hey, that's me, and my real name is Valerie.
Thank you for coming to my Studio website!
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.
I take pride in being a multi-generational working woman and "geek", doing what I love. While my family may consist of many Artists, Musicians, Writers, Directors, Producers, and Teachers... I am the first in my family to make a professional career as a Visual Artist. From the 'burbs of Boston to the Bay Area to LA, I've been practicing the entire way.
In 2019 I started connecting directly with students and their families in the Los Angeles and Glendale Unified School Districts.
Want to know why I like to teach?
