As a mother of two I find it paramount to read to my kids, and yes it will be standard practice that my kids will get involved with book week when the time comes at school (secretly I can’t wait to get them into a bit of dress up).

Being surrounded by books is simply in my blood. I just love books. I’ve even bought books just to look at on my coffee table or on my book shelf. My hubby thinks I am mad.

So it has been an honour to finally design book covers for clients. It’s an exciting time when all their hard work, thoughts, passion and time comes to fruition. Being part of that is super amazing!

From a personal & designer point of view, learning and working with publishers and editors has added to my skill set.
