Amanda Olson

Freelance Children's Book Illustrator & Illustrator

Location:New Castle, Indiana, United States

As an artist who has worked in the industry for over fifteen years, I can tell you that each new job, client, success and failure—every single experience—has helped shape me into the skilled and dedicated creative person that I am today.

For me, every aspect of this business adds texture to my life, and each day offers me an opportunity to create in a brand new way. I thrive on the challenge of finding solutions to my client's design and communication needs--coming up with that perfect headline to catch attention and deliver a clear, meaningful message and then developing a coordinating design or illustration that drives that point home. I enjoy all aspects of the design business, including the talented people I get to meet and the great ideas that they bring to the table.

My strongest asset is my versatility. My work ranges from whimsical-styled cartooning and children's book illustrations to very crisp and corporate-style collateral for banks and hospitals. You may see my attached portfolio below. Or go to to view more of my work.
