Graphite and Watercolor portraits
Diana L. Sharples holds a degree in communication design from the Atlanta College of Art (now Savannah School of Art and Design). She focused her studies on illustration with the goal of producing book covers. She has won numerous awards for her art at area Science Fiction conventions, and her work has appeared in magazines and gaming manuals. She also produced props and backdrops for ballet productions in Georgia. Diana is able to produce a wide array of art styles, from fine art portraits to Manga. She uses Photoshop to produce books covers for herself and other authors, bringing her illustrative skills to enhance stock photos or create images from scratch. While her main focus since the publication of her debut novel has been on writing fiction, she is quite happy to take a break to do book covers for other authors.
