Hi Val! I met you at the Sebastopol SCBWI workshop - fellow illustrator! Just wanted to mention I finally got around to looking you up on Google, and absolutely love your illustrations. I'm really envious of your ability to draw and paint kids that look really authentic and whimsical. See you at the next workshop!

Dear Val! Your work is so beautiful. We met in Cyprus in 1980. You painted a goodbye card for me. And now you have become a real artist! I am so proud of you. I've tried to contact you on facebook. I miss you.
