    I hired Susan to produce an original painting for the cover of my children's novel. She is a talented artist and did an excellent job of translating my ideas, expressed in words, to sketches and then to the finished painting. In addition to the painting, Susan integrated the book title, author's name, and back cover text with the artwork in Adobe Photoshop. Susan is very professional in dealing with her clients. She communicates clearly and in a timely fashion. She was very responsive to suggestions and requests. She completed the project well ahead of schedule. Susan has my highest recommendation!

    Susan was able to get my project done quickly and was able to ship it within a small time frame. I would recommend her to others, and would definitely hire her again.

    Susan was prompt and easy to work with. She quickly and accurately made changes I requested. Her illustrations are historically accurate and just right for my book.
