I am excited and open to book cover projects! I am currently booking for 2024 picture books as well.
I'm a freelance illustrator from Austin, Texas and new to Manitou Springs, CO with a style rooted in midcentury influence, through the lens of a modern existence. I focus on a representation of repeat patterns and texture in our natural world, observations of daily life, and messages of strength and acceptance, via hand-lettered typography. This love of smaller details-- a cluster of mismatched city buildings, lush color in an old quilt, variations in a garden-- is what I bring to my work: an appreciation for the lovely little things in life.
Let's open the visual world that your words have brought to life!
Some of my previous clients include National Geographic Learning, the American Federation for Teachers, and Ladybug Magazine. I am a lover of books (even below my reading level) and have a massive collection of inspiration at hand, always!
