Welcome! I’m Nicole, freelance illustrator & designer.

I live and work out of my home in the Chicago suburbs. I’m a self-taught artist, and have learned everything I know through my lifelong obsession with creating. I balance my time between client work, and creating helpful content for my fellow creatives.

I earned my Bachelor's degree in communications from Miami University in Ohio. I then studied Art Direction at the Chicago Portfolio School. I left my corporate graphic design job in 2015 to start my own business out of my first home on bustling Lane Avenue in Columbus, Ohio.

I’ve had the pleasure of working with:
