Overview

Reviews (55)
For over 9 years, I have been diligently mastering the in's and out's of Photoshop, creating art and design work for a variety of clients. While completing my education in graphic design, I have worked with several debut and indie authors, developing a love for all things fantasy, dystopian, and mystery. Most recently, I have also had the pleasure of working with urban fantasy author McKenzie Hunter and thriller novelist Leslie Wolfe, two best-selling authors on Amazon.

With a heavy background in both design and fine art, I enjoy merging my skillsets to create crisp, eye-catching covers. Creating awesome graphics that are true to the author's vision is always my biggest ambition. Steampunk romance, vampire hunter, or zombie outbreak, I would love to design the cover of your latest adventure!

Hampton not only exceeded my expectations, but he created a cover that matched the image of the creatures from my novel in my head. I would've never been able to come up with the design as beautifully...
