Editing Services

I am a freelance copyeditor, proofreader, and developmental editor with a PhD in art history. For the past ten years, I have worked as an editor for numerous students and scholars of art history and the broader humanities, artists, and non-profit organizations.

I have experience in all aspects of the writing, editing, and design process for scholarly books and articles, as well as exhibition catalogues, artist interviews, publications for general audiences, and related marketing materials.

As an academic, I have gained a track record of my own publications, including a catalogue raisonné, exhibition catalogues, journal articles, and as a journal and book editor. I also bring experience as a professor and reviewer of grant applications for an academic center.

While my PhD is in contemporary art, my clients come from a variety of geographic locations and fields of interest. My recent projects have included conference papers, journal articles, and books on topics as diverse as Korean ceramics, Dutch Brutalism, and early twentieth-century graphic design. I also have a certificate in copyediting from the University of California at San Diego and am well versed in the Chicago Manual of Style.

My professional career has been based on connecting artists and specialist authors with their audiences; hence, my goal is to make your text as clear and fluid as possible in US-American English. Send me an email using the Contact page to get a quote.
