About Valerie


Hi there! I’m Valerie Nelson, and I often go by “Snailerie” on the internet. I’m an Illustrator, Visual Artist, and Graphic Designer based in Rhode Island. I studied Graphic Design at RISD, worked as a Graphic Designer for a few places—most notably Todd Oldham Studio, and am now currently a freelance illustrator and designer.

In 2022, I began making stationery, greeting cards, and stickers, and sell those through

I’m open to collaborations, commissions, and just exchanging funny videos through the internet. 

You can contact me at:
or (I check both avidly)

Socials: Instagram, Twitter, Ko-fi, Tiktok

If you’d like to view my design portfolio, you can visit that here.
