I am a graphic design professional who has traded the corporate environment of a major lifestyle publisher for an office overlooking my garden. With 19 years experience designing covers and interiors in all formats and a broad range of subjects, I can help you create a book that is both reader friendly and beautiful. I am adept at all stages of the design process, from art direction of photography through page layout and typesetting. My projects have included everything from the straightforward text of memoirs to cooking and gardening books with hundreds of images. They have also included several New York Times bestsellers like Dr. Kellyanne's Bone Broth Diet, and Run Fast Eat Slow by Shalane Flanagan and Elyse Kopecky.
My freelance work ranges from logo design to books and newsletters. My clients include Black Dog and Leventhal, ACCO, Valley Press, Cape Hope Advisors, as well as self-published authors.
