Illustrator Val Jones

Artwork courtesy Val Jones, illustrator
Val Jones has been a working artist for many years.  Val is featured here because she is relatively new to the field of children's books and because I wanted to be one of the first to introduce you to her work.  The truth is, it won't be long before Val is seeing her own picture books published.  Just remember, you saw her here first.

The playfulness of Val's work inspires me.  She is able to accomplish the challenging task of keeping the looseness of her sketches right through to the finished illustrations.  Her characters tell a story.  Her design experience informs her work, giving it a finished quality and consistency which many newbies lack.

We wish her all the best in her publishing endeavors.

Do you know of an illustrator you'd like to see featured on Fresh Talent Saturday?  Send me an e-mail.  I love discovering new faces.
