With over 20 million YouTube views, and thousands of Twitter, and Facebook followers Valentina has been a pioneer in utilizing the internet and social media for creative self-promotion. Her efforts have been noticed and written about in “The Wall Street Journal”, “USA Today”, Chicago Tribune’s “RedEye”, and other publications.

This is how Valentina described her art blog:
“This is my art/video diary. Each episode documents the process of me creating a painting but also includes my rants, reflections, and fun moments I often capture with my camera. Every week I end up with a painting together with a "making of" video that, I believe, is the closest I could ever get to an ideal artist's statement.”

In 2006 “Val’s Art Diary” received a “Best Series” Nomination in YouTube’s first annual video awards.

The early iTunes Store 4.5/5 star rating and reviews suggest that the App is a success.

“This is a superb application works well connects you to all her work. I definitely recommend it, and you cannot beat the price. It’s free...”

“I think this is a great idea for Val. I love watching the videos about the creation of the paintings. Oh, and of course the photos of the paintings are great. I may just have to bid on some paintings now”
