One hot cup of editing

EDITING

Manuscript editing and review, proofreading, copy writing, and more—

Editing is scary. Entrusting your creative efforts to a critical eye can be a nerve-racking experience. As a magna cum laude graduate of Indiana University with a BA in English and a minor in Latin, I know the terrors of grammar firsthand. Fear not! I’ll help you conquer your commas and I’ll defend your creative choices—even if they don’t adhere to the rule book. Would you like to have an editor who will build you up, not tear you down?

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Book designs, logos, banners, business cards, and more—

Calling all indie authors and entrepreneurs! Do you need a book cover or logo that will wow your target audience? Look no further. I’ve been designing my heart out since the turn of the century. Whether you need a stunning book design, a thoughtfully-crafted logo, a convention hall banner, or swag to build your brand, I’ll work with you to create designs you’ll be proud to share.

ILLUSTRATION

Full-page illustrations, chapter images, stickers, character designs, and more—

There’s no doubt about it: Illustrations are the life of the party. Digital? Traditional? I’m practiced in a wide variety of media and I can tailor my illustrations to suit all kinds of projects—from full page prints to small chapter illustrations to stickers and emoji. I’d love to help you bring your ideas to life!

MEDITATIVE DESIGNS

Abstract ink and painted designs—

When I’m not helping other creators craft their dreams, I’m creating dreamy visions of my own. These abstract designs are one of my favorite ways to relax, unwind, and process. A symbolic mix of flowing lines, whirling spirals, and various textures and layers of color come together to create these freewheeling patterns. The result? A two-dimensional window into the subconscious. Would you like to take a look inside?
