Hey there, future bestselling author.

My name is Rena, I'm a book artist and creative soul living in the mecca of design, San Fransisco.

Wherever you are on this journey, I’m here with and for you. My goal is to help as many fellow artists as possible bring their work to life, because art is the source of inspiration, and inspiration makes the world a beautiful place.

Without art, what it means to be human would be radically different. What really intrigues me about it is how it stretches its reach into every corner of society and civilization. Are we art, too?

Thanks to my experience across many fields of art, including book design, illustration, typography, fashion design, graphic design, sculpture, pottery, fine art, art history and more, I am able to merge concepts, methods and ideas from different schools of thought and branches of humanity.

I will translate your written words into a visual bomb that entices your target audience. Your book cover and interior will ooze and evoke all of the emotion from your book’s unique world.

I sincerely look forward to hearing all about your book, your vision, and your goals.

Rena did a great job in creating a cover for my book. She listened closely to what I was looking for, while also giving her freedom to use her creative skills in making the cover stand out. I am very pleased with the final product. The communicating could have been better at times, but the work was well done.

Working with Rena has been an absolute pleasure. A great listener and delivered what I had envisioned for my very first book cover. She offered valuable input and will certainly use her for my future books. She is a gem.

Rena was an absolute delight to work with from beginning to end. I could tell that she was committed to delivering an excellent product - and she did! The e-book cover she designed exceeded my wildest expectations. Rena took my initial ideas and brought them to an even higher level. The cover she designed is a work of art, and I couldn't be more pleased. The colors and design are exquisite...
