Kelsey Marshalsey – Designer

Illustrator with a whimsical and dynamic style paired with idyllic settings. Cover design, book formatting + picture books. Lover of texture

Overview

Hey! I am super excited to work on your picture book, cover art or book formatting needs!


I’m a freelance illustrator and graphic designer from Ontario, Canada with a love and passion for what I do. My work is whimsical and dynamic that keeps things interesting and engaging. Each illustration is often paired with an idyllic setting. I am always looking for new fun ways to compose an illustration and love when a picture can take the lead in telling the story. Capturing your vision and essence is what I do best.


When we work together I want to make everything as streamlined as possible. I will walk you through what you can expect with me and make sure we are on the same page always throughout the project. It’s my goal to make this as stress-free for you as possible.


I can’t wait to help bring your vision to life.

Kelsey was a pleasure to work with. Her experience with other steps involved in publishing a book was invaluable for someone going through the process for the first time. Would highly recommend.

Kelsey was excellent to work with. She helped me with processes I wasn't sure about and was responsive and competent with specific requests of mine. She was flexible, creative, and adapted to varied needs.

Kelsey is exceptional in every way! From start to finish, our project went smoothly. She is organized yet flexible and accommodating. The final product was delivered early and exceeded expectations. The professional experience she brings to the table is just as good as her illustrative talents. I will be continuing to work with her in the future. Highly recommend!
