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 and publishers, but also with self-publishers and other 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 illustrated middle grade books, designed book covers, activity books, game cards and even soft toy designs of the main characters.

I love to bring simplicity, colors, expressivity and a touch of quirkiness to my illustrations and characters.

Made with a life-long love for drawing.

ABC Fruit: Learn the Alphabet with Fruit-Filled Fun! (ABC Food to Learn)

Heather Blume

Though it's written with young readers in mind, ABC Fruit is a delectable book for readers of all ages! It begins with the familiar; "A is for apple, a sweet and crunchy treat..." and introduces the novel, "J is for jackfruit, giant, juicy, and sweet." Each page reveals high-definition, full-color photos of fruit from A to Z. The words are written in simple, easy-to-read font, with alliteratio... read more

I really lucked out when I found Tuire. This is my first time working on a children's book and Tuire was incredible every step of the way. 1) Illustration talent - Her illustrations are incredible. I gave her my stories, and she found the fun details that made them come to life. I loved her illustrations so much I didn't really have much to give her feedback on. But when I did, she was so happ...

She's brilliant! With Earth's Call, Tuire was given a great amount to accomplish. From cover, multiple illustrations, and finally putting the whole novel together ready for upload to our various platforms. A task that required hundreds of communications, she was great the WHOLE process. In the Climate fantasy world of my Critters, Tuire needed to go deep into their universe and create f...

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!
