Artist creating bold, one-of-a-kind covers helping authors stand out against the overabundant stock photo covers. I'd love to help you!

Overview

I am a graphic designer with over 15 years experience, specializing in original book covers. I strive to make the author's words come to life to create striking book covers that stand out amongst the crowd. I combine 3D models and digital painting with minor photo manipulation to create unique and one-of-a-kind book covers. I offer many levels of custom book covers as well as premade book covers.

One of my recent book covers, Confessions of a Serial Songwriter, was also just featured on Extra TV.
