As a professional book cover designer or book illustrator, my focus is on meeting the client's brief, the target audience and creating a professional book cover design or illustration that my client will be proud of. It is important to me that the client is happy throughout the design process.
If my client gives me free rein to design a book cover, I will design it so that it is eye-catching, even in a bookshop amongst thousands of books. But also, will invoke the right emotion for that particular book genre and subject. I am always happy to advise my client on choice or style or other, where required.
I pride myself on a friendly yet professional approach to my client's needs and I am fully committed to ensuring my client gets the best service, whilst having a good working relationship with me. I am passionate about illustration and always happy to help my client turn their dreams into reality.
I am a BA (Hons) trained Illustrator and Designer who specialises in book cover, album cover design and internal book illustrations.
I work predominantly in pen and ink. But also, watercolour, oil pastels and digital illustration. Trained in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and In-Design; this training has also helped with my freelance technical work in web design.
Recent illustration and design commissions include: the National Portrait Gallery in London, National Trust, Montacute House in Somerset and HAE UK.
I am also a website designer and technical support for your social media, search engine optimisation (SEO) and Google Analytics reports, having worked for many years in technical and engineer based roles.
