TestimonialsWe had Claire teach a two-part book dummy webinar for our SCBWI region. Her presentation was well + read more put together and the information was useful and clear. She walked us through her book dummy-making process and it was wonderful. Our attendees were thrilled with the info. She was also easy to communicate with as we planned and prepared the event and got us everything we needed to advertise and promote the event before our deadline. I'd recommend her as a speaker for other events.

Claire visited my college-level Graphic Narrative class to give my students an informative, fun, + read more and compelling first-hand look at the process of becoming an illustrator, which she supplemented with stories from her own experience and with examples of her various types of illustration from picture books to graphic novels. The students loved it! Thanks, Claire!”
