The illustration was created by pouring sand over a painting of Venus by Sandro Botticelli and swirled to expose the lips. The subtitle, “an exploration of gender and genius,” was inserted inside the area of the title instead of placing it in a more traditional location underneath the title.

I am a versatile designer, ranging from online, interactive media, to print and video/sound; my latest passion is book design. One of the most delightful things in being both an author and designer is that I get to design my own books. As a creative consultant, I have designed books for other authors and helped them get published.
