Valerie Tan is Vision Seeker's newest artist–after working an apprenticeship under the guidance of JJ. Throughout her childhood, Valerie was always interested in the Arts, and attended drawing lessons at a very young age.
Her first step in becoming a skilled artist was at Seneca College's Art Fundamentals program. There, Valerie studied drawing, illustration, design, colour theory, and art history in order to build a foundation in Visual Arts. After developing the dexterities she needed, Valerie started to explore the world of tattooing and discovered JJ, the creator and an artist at Vision Seeker Studio.
Ever since she was offered an apprenticeship by him, she has been creating designs and learning to tattoo under his guidance. Valerie's style is minimalistic with mostly simple lines and intricate dot-work. She also has experience with graphic illustrations, where she likes to create surrealist, psychedelic and cartoon-inspired work.
