Professional Experience

Since 1988, I have been working with art directors, authors, and editors in the field of art and photography editing, research, and permissions. On staff at Random House as the Art Administrator, I worked on thousands of book covers. Since 2002, I have continued my work as a freelancer. Aside from my book cover work, I have worked on book interiors such as WALKING THE BIBLE/Bruce Feiler, STILL LOOKING/John Updike, GOYA/ Robert Hughes,TARTAN/Jeffrey Banks, Doria de la Chapelle, and THE FAMILY/Kitty Kelley. My specialties include working with editorial photography, creative concepts, finding historical subjects, and locating fine art and contemporary photography. Every project that I take on gets my individual attention. I research online archives myself to assure the most meticulously edited selections, and consistently seek out new sources.
