About me

Graphic Designer and Dreamer. I grew up with a healthy interest in anything related to the Arthurian legends – thus the inspiration for naming my design business ‘Avalon Graphics’. Fantasizing about castles, knights in shining armour and all that frivolity were (and still are!) my favorite pastime. Also, I have always been fascinated with British history; in particular the Dark Ages. I regularly attend local Renaissance Festivals here in North Carolina, and enjoyed my first visit to the UK in the fall of 2012 for the HNS London Conference. I am also an passionate digital photographer and often use my own photography in my design creations. I ventured into the unique and rewarding niche of book cover design upon meeting author Helen Hollick who gave me the opportunity to design for her UK publications. I enjoy collaborating directly with authors and truly have discovered my dream job!
