As a pattern designer, artist and consultant I am often both a designer and project manager.

I can assist you in developing a design direction for a project you have in mind, prepare mood boards, present creative concepts and create detailed pattern collections. I can also run your project, managing strategy, budget and timelines.

If you would like to discuss your creative needs please get in touch here.


I recently worked with the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria on developing a range of stationery and homewares to commemorate their 175th Anniversary. I was delighted to work on this fascinating project, which included developing a creative brief and designing a contemporary botanical collection.

The artwork I developed for the Legacy range was based on historical specimens housed in the National Herbarium of Victoria collection, creating a tangible link to the gardens and its work.

During this project I worked with both the Marketing and Retail teams to ensure the finished products were both on brand and on trend. I also managed the manufacturing process, working with experienced local companies to ensure a high-quality product.

Valentina’s dedication and professionalism is evident in all aspects of her work. We appreciate her attention to detail and creative approach to bringing a new product range to our stores, in celebration of Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria’s 175th year.
