Valentina’s licensing portfolio continues to grow with new product ranges to be released at retailers worldwide.
American stationery manufacturer Studio Oh! have commissioned new work by the Venezuelan artist through our American partners Jewel Branding & Licensing to launch their new range of colouring-in products.
