Hello! I am an artist working in games and publishing in the Seattle area of the rainy Pacific Northwest USA. My illustration work focuses on characters wandering through a magic-filled nature - I'm fascinated by that feeling of something moving just out of sight, and often I seek to recreate that feeling in my paintings. I also love bold lettering and fun shape design!

Drawn to books and publishing from a young age, I followed that passion into adulthood and have now worked in art and design for a number of years. Industry experience means I can help answer your questions about publishing your book, creating a worry-free cover design experience for you. I would love to help you make your book a reality!

I provide:
- Illustration for covers and interior
- Accurate file preparation
- Clean graphic design
- Striking typography
- Storyboarding for picture books
- Visual development
- Character design
- Social media marketing images


If you would like to work together, I would love to hear from you. Happy to answer any questions, let's chat about your project!

Casey did a wonderful job catching the vision for the project and bringing the world to life. I'm very proud to have her work on my cover. She was pleasant and responsive throughout the process. Thanks!

I didn't have much of an idea of what I wanted the cover to look like, but Casey really helped develop the vague image in my head with her art and suggestions. The cover she made was absolutely adorable (with a ghost that would give Casper a run for his money) but more than that, it was true to the story.

I wholeheartedly recommend Ms. Gerber. I cannot emphasize enough how happy I was with her commitment towards my book. Her final designs fully captured the heart of my story and, without a doubt, I could not have chosen a better artist to collaborate with.
