Doina Paraschiv is a superb artist and a wonderful person. It was my privilege to work with her in preparing my children's book, TOBY TOO SMALL, for publication. Doina is a professional in every way. Not only is her artistic ability outstanding, but her technical knowledge was of paramount importance in producing my book for electronic devices. I highly recommend her services. ~ Dr. MaryAnn Diorio, Author of TOBY TOO SMALL

My first children’s book… My first experience with an illustrator…Perfect! Thanks to Doina!
I am very proud of the illustrations provided to me by Doina in my first of a series of children’s books. Doina has made my experience as a first time author one I can smile at and share with whomever will listen. Her work is amazing. Her professionalism is most desired. Her ability to get the job done with perfection, priceless! And most of all, I know I have made a friend for life whom I will be using for my entire book series.
Thanks so very much Doina!
Where is Sungi Bear?
We have the power to aid our children in the use of their imagination.
Thanks so much for your timeliness and attention to this book project for me. You do some awesome work. You are profesional and creative. It took my breath away. Your illustrations were outstanding, not to mention the writing! You are very patient and easy to work with.
Thanks again for a great job.
I could not have done better than Doina Paraschiv for illustrations on my first book. Her experience, creativity and talent were
invaluable. She’s exceptionally skilled and knows the publishing process thoroughly. Doina completed the design and layout
so that the book only needed to be printed by my publisher. She absolutely brought my book to life and everyone who sees it
raves about the fantastic illustrations.
I look forward to working with Doina on future projects and highly recommend her.

My name is Dain F. Stokes, and I am the author of "Jumpy the Frog" children's book written under my pen name of Jake
Farrell. Doina Paraschiv illustrated the entire book, including the front and back cover. She did a simply wonderful job of
capturing the full essence of the book's characters and theme with her illustrations. I have had countless compliments from
readers on the magnificence of these illustrations, including Adam Sandler, who received two autographed books from myself
last December for his two daughters. Doina is a truly gifted artist, and works in a highly professional manner. She is punctual,
never missed a deadline (wish I could say the same for myself), and she walks with you through every step of the book
creating process. She did the book design and page layout with perfection! I have two more "Jumpy" books in production, and
Doina, hands down, will be the illustrator!

P.S. For examples of Doina's work on my book, go to www.amazon.com and type Jumpy the Frog.
Doina Paraschiv is very talented and knowledgeable, and it is all apparent by the work she does. I had an excellent experience working with Ms. Paraschiv. Not only did she illustrate my first book, but she also served as an adviser and an advocate to make sure the final product was something that would make both of us proud.
Working with Doina was an awesome experience. She was able to take my ideas and together with her own, make a beautiful book. Twice! She is fabulously professional and her work speaks for itself. I will be sure to work with her again in the future.

It has been my pleasure to work with Doina! She is an exceptional artist capable of excellence in many mediums. She was the artist on my book, Christopher's Adventures: A Prayer on Angel Wings. I am looking forward to our next project. I count it a privilege to have met her and had her as an artist for Word Productions.

To whom it may concern:
It is my great pleasure to refer Doina Paraschiv to anyone seeking a highly talented, skilled, and dedicated artist. The very
first thing people say when they open my book, All Children Have Different Eyes, is how striking and beautiful the
illustrations are. Because the book is a unique educational resource in the special education market, designing the characters
and every scene required great attention to detail and understanding of the cause, which Doina accomplished with enthusiasm
I am not an artist and had no idea how to lay out a picture book, but Doina guided me every step of the way making layout and
design suggestions I would have never considered on my own. I am confident that her artistic design skills made the book
what it is today—a double award winner.

I have had the pleasure of working with Doina on two book covers, ESPete: Sixth Grade Sense and ESPete: Psychic Hoop Dreams, and I look forward to working with her again in the future. She is a wonderfully talented artist, skilled at both original creation and taking direction and running with it to amazing results. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, or check out her samples, which speak for themselves.
To whom it may concern,
Doina has engineered a plethora of projects for me having to do with book design and illustration, cover layout, typesetting,
posters and other unnamed projects. She has become a trusted publishing advisor through the years. When it comes to certain
tasks, there may be a revolving door of professionals I use, but Doina has been the one main constant since I launched my first
book in 2005. She's the epitome of a professional. Feel free to call me should you need more details.

We absolutely loved working on this project with Doina.
She created a comic strip for wedding favors and it was absolutely my favorite part of our wedding planning.
Doina is so creative and intuitive. She'd never met me or my husband but was totally able to create a characters that felt so much like us. She filled the roles as mentor, helping us submit the information in a way that would make it easy for her to work, and often as our editor, flagging anything that was unclear or incorrect. She was flexible, we would propose to change directions or add in a deliverable and she was very willing to go with the flow.
We selected her to work on our project based solely on her work and it was a good choice.
