Hi! I have been illustrating for independent authors and large publishing houses for over six years. I am a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design with a degree in illustration and graphic design. My illustration portfolio has won many scholarship awards while seeking my degree and has been showcased in several exhibitions. My design skills and passion for books has led me to interning with the Penguin Young Readers Design Group at Penguin Random House. Our team collaborated on covers for many well-known authors which you can see in my portfolio!
Working with me is easy and reliable. I provide as many initial sketches as needed to ensure that I am capturing your ideal vision. When finishing my illustration pieces I can paint or draw in a variety of traditional and digital mediums, watercolor being my most frequently used. As a graphic designer I also design covers using the same method of sketches combined with typography exploration. I offer 3 rounds of revisions for every piece I create so you are beyond satisfied with your finished product! I have experience creating both covers and jackets, book interiors, so basically, anything you need, I've got your back. I would love to hear about your project and can't wait to get started! Feel free to inquire about pricing or time estimates.
