I've been writing creative fiction my whole life. I didnt actually major in creative writing at university, but was in the top 3 of 300 students in my creative writing class alongside people who were doing doctorate degrees on the subject.

If you need Illustration covering a wide range of subjects and/or styles, NOW Illustration & Design should be your choice. I have been a freelance illustrator/designer for 30+ years and am a published illustrator of several children’s books. I am also a caricaturist (15 years) and have been an instructor of Graphic Design at the college level (12 years). I am proficient in numerous styles including, but not limited to, pen and ink, watercolor, colored pencil, and digital art. I range from realistic renderings to cartoon & caricature. I pride myself in listening to the clients needs, asking questions and interpreting their ideas into a visual and I have never been late for a deadline. Whether you have a children's book, novel, book covers, biz cards, brochures, posters etc., I will create concepts and work with you through to completion. I understand the personal nature and closeness one develops with a project and I listen and interpret your ideas into visual reality. I'm not a huge corporation, which allows me the flexibility to act one-on-one with the client. Pricing is reasonable also. There is no "cookie cutter" method that is used. I like to be compensated for my work just like everyone, but I will work with you for the best solution for both.

I graduated in 2010 from the Missouri School of Journalism, one of the top journalism schools in the nation. My emphasis lies in Strategic Communication (aka Advertising). I have written professionally as an online content writer since studying abroad in Sydney, Australia. You can find my work at the Missouri Graduate School Web site and online for the Macquarie Globe. I currently am working in the insurance industry, but looking for freelance opportunities to work on as well. I also enjoy photography and post some of my photos to flickr, which you can view at the following address: http://www.flickr.com/photos/samanthaabbott/ My newest addition to my family is the Canon 60D, so I'm hoping to expand my portfolio very soon.
