VAL TOUKATLY is a Boston-based illustrator, animator, and borderline animal hoarder, whose work has been featured in several publications and gallery exhibitions around the world. Her work primarily focuses on duality and secrets; exploring that which is hidden and unknown, with the intent to entertain and inspire.
To date, Val has worn many hats, both literally and figuratively. She has managed an arts center, written and illustrated a webcomic, co-founded a small business, and worked under a comics industry veteran. In addition to a lifelong passion for art, Val has also worked as a real estate salesperson and dog trainer. No, really!
