Overview

I am a book cover designer with more than 20-year experience, working for publishers and independent authors worldwide. Among my current clients are Penguin-Random House and Tuttle. I find working with independent authors to be a rewarding experience because I can establish a direct bridge between literature and visual art. My goal is not only to be able to translate visually the contents of the book, but also to help authors promote their work by creating compelling and enticing covers.
