Hi, I'm Tuire.

I have worked over 3 years in children's book publishing as an illustrator, book creator and designer. I make children's books from start to print, from the concept and character development to the final artwork, book design and layout.

With thousands of books out there, I'll help your book stand out from the crowd with a professional finish. Based on the project, I can work as either an illustrator or a designer, or both. I also prepare the final book files, whether they are for e-publishing or printing.

My experience ranges from self-publishing, e-publishing and print-on-demand to traditional publishing. I continuously work with editors, publishers and print houses, but also with self-publishers and private clients.

I work 100% digitally. My everyday tools are Adobe CC (Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign) and Wacom Cintiq.

Picture books being my speciality, I have also designed book covers, activity books, game cards and even soft toy designs of the main characters.

I hold a BA degree in advertising. In 2014 and 2015 I worked for major advertising agencies in Finland (SEK & Grey) and Belgium (Serviceplan).

Today, I have the pleasure of creating illustrations and characters that are simple, colourful, expressive, child-like, eye-catching and sometimes a bit quirky.

Made with a life-long love for drawing.

Tuire is a gem! She plowed through all of the challenges, until things were perfect. She is a great communicator and broke things down in easy to understand terms, so I could comprehend computer design for my covers. I will continue to hire her. I am really happy with her work!

Tuire has been a jewel to work with. I am inexperienced and she has spent extra time to help me understand each step she takes to create my picture book covers. She is patient when I have delays and offered great suggestions when I was confused. I will continue to utilize her for all of my books!
