Nicole was lucky enough to grow up with parents who supported her love of creating, whether it was painting a mural on the walls of her bedroom or building in her father's workshop. After graduating from University of Illinois, working as an Architect, and then as an Art Director in a Seattle Gallery, she dove into Illustration. Nicole works full time Illustrating for clients and teaching art from her creekside studio and around the world. She loves to combine the flowing lines and composition inspired from nature with beautiful color to bring life, emotion and character out. She strives for excellent service, an open mind, and completing projects on-time every time. In her personal time, she enjoys living in the Pacific Northwest with the company of her husband, 3 sweet teens and their 22 pets. Every one of them provide a lot of inspiration and models for Illustrations! Nicole is an Active member of SCBWI, is an award winning Artist, and works with clients world-wide in both Illustration and teaching.
