Hello! I’m Valerie, your friendly neighborhood shop assistant. I enjoy comic books, anime, and nerd-culture in general.
I grew up in the peninsula, where I kept mostly sane by obsessively drawing, with a strong tendency towards female figures.
After having moved to San Francisco, I started studying under accomplished artist and retired Academy of Art professor, Marvin Werlin. I still remain under his tutelage, as I still have much to learn.
I started working at Dream Masters Custom Tattoos in March of 2016, where I also continue to learn from some of the greatest artists I’ve had the pleasure to know!
