Barbara Tillison Photography & ArtsSie Designs: What They Do…

Barbara & Sierra are not only artists, they are a mother & daughter team.

Barbara started back in 1990. She mainly does bookcovers and digital art. I’ve looked through some of Barbara’s book covers & they are gorgeous!

Sierra is a college student majoring in art. She does mainly watercolors, but she also has work in anime & pen and pencil.

Barbara & Sierra are located in North Carolina. Not only do they do local work, but they sell their work online.

 Barbara is available for most types of photo shoots.


Barbara Tillison just worked on the cover for my first book, and I could not be more pleased. Once I gave her the information about the story and the main character, she absolutely nailed it! I would recommend her to everyone!  ~ M.S. Brown


I was the lucky recipient of Barbara’s very first book cover, for my Horror Anthology, Bitter Fruit: A Taste Of The Antholocaust. She produced a beautiful cover that was spot on to my specifications, she also had the work done a lot faster than I anticipated, I will definitely be seeking her out for future projects. I simply cannot recommend her enough! ~ Justin Osborne

Photography for me is more than a profession, it is a deeply rooted passion and philosophy. Over the years while raising my five children I have explored many different creative venues. I always come back to photography. After receiving my degree I opened a studio where I did portraits, weddings and so on. There was also a short time I spent as a newspaper photographer, which has given me a different perspective on things. I enjoy the journalistic approach as well as traditional and the more creative sides of photography. ~ Barbara

When I was just 5 years old I started drawing horses, especially Spirit from the Disney movie “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron”. Now I am in my first year of college and majoring in art of course! Currently my work is for sale in restaurants, online and other places. I have even been doing book cover design! ~ Sierra
