If you went to ZooValdes.com to buy some art you will have noticed it is now closed. I ran Zoo Valdes from 2007-2013 with much success creating animal-based art and design. After working with a new friend and partner, Barry Wheeler, to make the site more of an online shop in 2012, I just felt that it was time to simplify and get back to using just my last name. I will be selling original art and working with commercial clients just as before only I am tweeking things behind the scenes in terms of my business. I will relaunch an online store in the summer of 2014. Thanks to all who supported the "Zoo"!
