Hi, i´m Val, an artist currently on the island of Ibiza.
I lived as a nomad, traveling the world for over ten years; until finding a home in Spain.
Besides illustrations, I love doing pottery and organic gardening. My gardening projects are found on another website: http://valmccall.wix.com/permartculture
My family and I are constantly looking for ways to grow anything from trees to flowers to vegetables in arid conditions. Water can be scarce here, especially in summer. We feel it´s important to use our natural resources wisely to keep our island healthy and beautiful.
Teaching and learning languages has always been part of my life, and another passion of mine.
As a young girl, my best friend taught me to read and write in Hebrew so we could pass each other secret messages at school.
Years later, I taught myself to read and write in Hindi during my daily commute in the Madrid metro.
I tend to be fluent in 4 languages, and can understand 3 more, but this fluctuates depending on the state of my brain.
Academically: I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Communication from Seattle-Pacific University, and a Diploma in Graphic Design & Illustration from Art Neo, Madrid.
Youtbe tutorials are also a resource I value greatly, as they have taught me to cut my own hair, chat with animals and sing in overtone.
If you´d like to receive (infrequent) updates about all sorts of random things, like fun pottery projects, ecological solutions, and gardening discoveries, just contact me and I'll add you to my email list.
