About Dave Keller:

I am a professional artist and I am excited to offer my creative skills to produce works of art and inspiration for children.

My toolbox includes a good understanding of MS and Adobe suite programs, as well as a desire to learn, solid people skills, and the ability to communicate and work for writers, artists and people with similar interest!

If that is you, I would love to discuss what I can bring to the project you are imagining! Please reach out!
