Books have been in my life since I can remember, being born to a family of teachers. Art came later, but became just as much a love in my life. I've been telling stories my entire life and I'd love to help yours get to where it can be with an amazing cover.

Cover design is something I started doing for myself, as I selfpublished my first short stories. For the past couple of years, I've developed a portfolio as I worked with indie authors from Brazil.

I enjoy crafting every aspect of the cover and I can work with illustrated covers (either by me or another artist of your choosing) as well as photo manipulation.

My goal is to give you something that'll help your book connect with readers while remaining true to your vision.
