Overview

I would love to design the perfect cover or art for your book!

My professional background:

I am a freelance graphic designer and work with clients around the world on all kinds of projects, particularly book cover design, illustration, and branding. I graduated from Boston University with three degrees: Master of Science in Advertising with a focus on Art Direction, Bachelor of Arts in History, and a Bachelor of Science in Film and Television. Given my degrees I have a thorough understanding of advertising, marketing, history, and the entertainment industries and love designing work for these genres. I am also very passionate about designing covers and art for fiction novels which pairs very well with my passion for drawing the unusual and bizarre.
I have academic and professional experience in The United States, The United Kingdom, Australia, and across Europe. Because of this I am very aware of international aesthetic preferences and can make sure your book is as appealing as possible to your readers around the world!

My personal background:

I was born in Belgium and raised in the United States, speak 5 languages, and have the greatest dog in the world. When I'm not designing I like knitting, baking cookies, restoring old photos, trying desperately not to kill my plants, and buying too many books to realistically ever be able to finish.

Skills:
Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign, Brackets, Muse, and After Effects.
Cover design, digital illustration, digital painting, photo manipulation, typography, and hand lettering.
I can also clap with one hand and teach you how to hypnotize a lobster.

Feel free to reach out to me any time for a quote, to ask question, or just to say hi!
