I am an author, book designer, lettering illustrator, and an avid art journaler. After seven years of art directing magazines including America West Airlines Magazine, I decided to design books from my home studio. I design coffee table books, gift books,
cookbooks, and kids books, and my design work has been included in Print’s Regional Design Annual 2002 and also has been recognized by the Copper Quill Awards, the Association of Partners for Public Lands, January Magazine, and Round & Coffin Club’s 2005 Western Books Exhibition, among others. In 2008, Quarry published my first book, 1000 Artist Journal Pages: Personal Pages and Inspiration. My next book, Doodle Diary: Art Journaling for Girls, will publish Fall 2010 by Gibbs Smith Publisher. Please feel free to reach me at 480.756.8630 or dawnds at qwest.net for any book design and/or lettering projects!
