About the Artist:

…Putting a Beautiful, Compelling
Face on Authors’ Work…

I’m just a small town girl, living in a lonely world. I took the midnight train… Oops, sorry, got off-track. Artist, hobbit, and crazy lady running in the woods, I’m either madly creating graphic masterpieces in my dungeon or out chasing bears with my dogs.

Author by trade, I made the move into graphic art as an extension of my writing, and I have a passion for creating snapshots of an author’s work with the intention of bringing their stories to life. A firm believer in the old adage that we only get one chance to create a first impression, I believe a cover is the doorway to the author’s inner sanctum.

I see myself as unapologetically Canadian and love all things maple syrup.
