I am pleased to present Stephanie Adams as a featured artist! Make sure to check out and share her work.
Please share some information about yourself. Hi I’m Stephanie Adams! I wear many hats. I am a published author, graphic designer, Biology teacher, cosmetologist, mother and wife. I enjoy many hobbies and love to learn!!
Tell us about your craft. I am a graphic designer and book formatter. I design ebook and paperback covers. Some of my covers come pre made, but most are made to order. I also format ebook and paperback novels. This must be done to ensure pages are aligned, font and text are accurate and embellishments are in place.
How did you get started? Actually, I have always loved art. I have a gift to be able to learn very quickly that I attribute as a blessing from my Heavenly Father. I decided I wanted to design book covers after I was given a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis this past month. I picked up on it quickly and began giving away covers at first. Orders flew in after people saw my work! I feel so blessed.
Are you working on anything right now? Of course! Right now I am working on three covers for custom made orders that include a cozy mystery, a young adult fiction novel, and what I think is categorized as “chic lit”. I am also working on a box set for a very successful author.
What are your future plans, long or short term? I am currently working mainly on covers but will still take on formatting jobs. I am planning to add marketing services within the next couple months that will enable me to assist other authors in finding readers!
Any parting words or advice to other artists? Just do what you love! Often times artist are concerned about what the world will think of what they do. Forget it! Just do what you love. You were blessed with talents that you must hone and share with the world!
