We’d like to thank all of the sponsors for their generosity, and for helping to make the magazine launch a fun event! Please consider visiting their sites and possibly purchasing their products!

Valerie Jagiello…fine artist, graphic designer and photographer
For several years after school she worked in Advertising as both a creative and art director but left Madison Avenue because she didn’t like being creative “on demand”! Valerie left the nine to five world and never looked back.
A keen observer of life and the world around her Valerie is constantly looking for new sources or products to use within the creative process. Everyday you can find her in the studio, which she shares with Harry and the Fisch, creating something. Even now, at times…she still uses her Crayolas.
Nocturnal by choice…Valerie prefers to work at night when most of the world is still.
During her lifetime Valerie has won numerous awards and has had many shows. These are unimportant….as her work (art) is the reason for her being. “I am a working artist…who is blessed creating what I like. I will continue to work until the day I die”!!!
