Ivy Giddens – Designer

I love the process of bringing the author's characters and worlds to life--it's exciting for the both of us!


A narrative illustrator with over 15 years experience. Though my primary interest is cover art and scene/spot illustration, I also do quite a bit of concept art, as well as character design (helping an author/creator bring their characters to life is easily one of the most fun parts of my job.)

My style sits pretty broadly within the middle grade to adult age range, largely falling in line with the more subdued, semi-realistic tones. But doing brighter work certainly isn't off the table.

I have been praised for high quality work, quick turnaround time, close communication, and fast response to any edits and changes needed.

I would love to work with you!
