Hello, my name is Colleen Quint. I am a book cover illustrator working in graphite and Photoshop. My passion is helping writers visualize their stories with illustrations that engage teen and young adult readers. Specific genres of focus include science fiction and fantasy. To visualize the fantastic, unseen, and legendary are my greatest sources of inspiration. I believe each artist has a voice unlike any other. Within each voice resides the powerful potential to influence thought and heart. What a privilege to engage the world in such a way!
