bertie bee´s big adventure

“Marina is a joy to work with. She is professional and organized. She is a good communicator and always available. We were able to work on changes in a straightforward way and I could always count on helpful, thoughtful feedback The fact that she has much experience with illustrating and publishing children's books helped me so much as a first time author. I cannot recommend her enough. I am almost sorry my book is finished as I will miss our early morning emails and chats. This was a true collaborative effort, just as I hoped it would be. I would definitely use Marina again. ”"
Kimberly K. Schmidt. Scottville. VA, USA.

"Marina was a joy to work with. She was very patient, and brought ideas to the table that I never would have thought of on my own. Her creativity brought my story to life, and she was happy to edit images I wanted changed. She always responded in a timely manner and made me feel like my project was her top priority. I will definitely be hiring her again. "
Colleen LeMaire.St Charles. IL, USA.

"I have been in business for over 30 years and have used a number resources and contractors during that time. It is rare to find an individual that can not only perform as advertised but also do it with professionalism and timeliness. Marina is that person for us. Marina has done an outstanding job in her deliveries, artwork and communications on the progress of the work. I would highly recommend her if you need a creative, professional artist. We are very grateful that Marina is on our team."
Wade Younger CEO, Youthapedia. USA

“Marina_Saumell did an excellent job with my children's book. Her drawings are simply stunning and she put lots of thought into creating the scenes and moving the story along in an interesting way. This was my first book and she was very helpful and offered guidance and support throughout the project. I highly recommend her and I look forward to working with her again soon. ”
