Overview

Hi folks! I'm Hayley and I've been a full time picture book illustrator + character designer since 2018. Nice to meet you :)

I love illustrating character driven stories that are full of heart the most. I'm drawn to stories that showcase a wide variety of kids in the protagonist role, and I strive to show kids how beautiful our differences can be. My strength also lies in taking my client all the way from manuscript to printed book. So whether you're self-publishing or working with an agency, my experience with things like font choice, barcodes and print exports can set me apart from other illustrators! I love collaborating with passionate people, so if that's you then let's chat!


Testimonial by Rousan J. Davidson -
(Author of "GoGo RoRo Finds Her Gifts")

"Hayley and I started working together in December 2018 through June 2019 when I published my first book, 'GoGo RoRo Finds Her gifts'. Hayley made such a lasting impression with me that resulted in securing continual work on future projects. What really impressed me about her work as a freelancer is not only that her style is very colorful and modern but that she is always keeping in mind what it is you envision as the client; with regular check-ins, updates, and to-do lists for the following week. She takes the time to ensure your stamp of approval before moving onto larger tasks. Hayley has a very affordable hourly rate that both worked with my timeline and budget. I highly recommend Hayley as both an illustrator and animator as she illustrated my first book and created the promo video that drove my sales through the roof. Thank you Hayley for making my vision come to life! "


Testimonial by Peace Amadi -
(Co-Author of "Chichi and Didi Love Their Names")

" Hayley has to be one of the most talented, invested, easy-to-work with person I’ve had the pleasure of working with in my life. And I’ve worked with a lot of people. My sister and I were pretty much in tears from the moment we saw the storyboard, knowing we had chosen the right person to bring our vision to life. What a blessing this woman is. Thank you Hayley!! You’re a dream come true."

Hayley was wonderful to work with! From the beginning, she outline everything I could expect and helped me feel comfortable about the process. This is my first children's picture book and she was great to answer all questions I had. In addition she was so patient with me as I also have a young baby. You definitely will not be disappointed working with her. Thank you HAYLEY!
