Jess LaGreca

Jess is a digital illustrator and designer with a background in traditional fine art — currently based in Hoboken, NJ.

With a particular interest in combining type-and-image, her work has been used for album covers, book interiors, and the spreads and covers of editorials. In addition to freelancing, she is working full-time as the Art & Design Coordinator in the children's publishing division at Simon & Schuster, located in midtown Manhattan.

When she isn't glued to her Wacom devices, you can typically find Jess running long-distance, engrossed in a good book, or planning her next travel escapade.

Jess is available for commission and/or collaboration.
