***Please note: Currently booking August 2022 and later. Thank you!***

Hi! My name is Casey, and I'm an artist living and working in the Pacific Northwest USA. Over the past seven years I have been fortunate to design and illustrate for many wonderful clients and companies, including Wizards of the Coast, Boneshaker Press, The Chromatic Fates Tarot, and dozens of independent authors.

You have your own unique perspective that comes through in your book, and that should shine on your book cover as well! I take a personalized approach with every author, every series, and every book. In each project, I prioritize organization so that you know what's happening every step of the way, and at the end I deliver publishing-ready files you can upload directly to the site of your choice. Two free rounds of revision are available for every project, just in case.

An exciting book cover can give you an instant connection with readers. Emotive illustrations and professional typography take it up a notch further and make your book look professional. You take your craft seriously, so let's show that in your branding! I would love to help you capture your readers' imaginations with a beautiful and exciting cover: a gateway into your story for readers to walk through.

Whether you're a practiced hand or new to publishing, I will offer vision, organization, and guidance to help you inspire your audience, drive sales, and achieve your publishing goals. I hope to hear from you soon! :)

I needed some modification to covers I had and Casey was enthusiastic and professional in getting those changes done. She's always responsive, on time, and communicative. I would definitely continue to work with Casey.

This is what I told Casey about her work. It's absolutely perfect. I’m at a loss for words. Something my wife and friends would never believe could happen. I was away all weekend. Sorry for the delay. I will be hiring you again right now. Take care and thank you very much!!!!:)
