I am Valeshka Escalona, a 33-yearold illustrator based in Galicia, Spain. My love for illustrating comes from the stories I read as a child. I loved everything about the book images but I cannot forget, of course, one of my greatest influences, Disney.

I grew up studying art as I wanted to be an artist and study Fine Arts.  For more than 10 years, I have worked in Graphic Design and illustration, creating textile patterns, illustrations of fashion collections, and logos illustrated in watercolour and digital, plus much more.

My dream, which was always to illustrate children's stories and dedicate myself to 2D and 3D animation, has finally come true. I’m living my dream!


Valeshka designed the logo and branding for my organic products brand. Then she designed the product labels and 3D mockups for my website including designs for Posters and Ads for social networks. Her work was excellent, she showed great ability when mixing graphic design with illustrations. She listened to my ideas and  delivered a great product. I would definitely work with her again.  -  Rana Coetzee - NZ

I cannot say enough good things about Valeshkart, about her personally and her work. I have worked with two other illustrators in the past and Valeshkart is far superior to either one of them. Her illustrations for my book went beyond my expectations. While English is her second language Valeshkart did not hesitate to clarify what I wanted. I loved the little details she added to the illustrations, that I hadn’t even thought about.  -  Christine Callaway - Arizona, USA
