Taylor Barron – Designer

Always open to hearing about new projects! I illustrate children's books and design covers, and I love to work in all genres.


My name is Taylor and I'm a freelance illustrator and concept artist. After graduating from DigiPen Institute of Technology with a BFA in digital art and animation, I worked in the motion graphics and animation industry for a couple of years. Since then, as an independent artist, I have worked with many clients to bring their work to life! Most of my freelance work consists of children's book illustrations, book covers, concept art for films and games, and digital portraits.

I'd love to help you with your projects, and can be flexible according to your budget and timeline. I work in iterations and will incorporate your ideas and feedback into the process! Let's chat!
