Premade Book Covers Market

Hello. I started my creative journey as a craftsman. I worked for several years in a laboratory where we created artistic stained glass on commission and lamps and various objects with the tiffany technique. I started studying graphics programs initially to make sketches of stained glass windows that up until then I had done on paper with watercolor pencils. So I became passionate about photographic manipulation. The work as a craftswoman has gradually disappeared because they are very expensive.
