Overview

Communicating the image in your mind is a key element in my work and I enjoy helping authors to find the perfect motive and tone for your unique story.

For me, the combination of illustration and typography has always been a great pleasure to work with. You create a 'set of clothes' for the book so that it can go out in the world and be recognized for its quality in both the literary and visual sense. It's always important for me to read the script, to know the book in depth, so I can show the finer details at their best on the cover.

I always look forward to the next challenge and I am eager to read your exciting story.
