Nicole Cicak is the designer and illustrator behind the creative studio On Lane Avenue. On Lane Avenue was established in 2015 in Columbus, Ohio. It all started out of Nicole’s first home on bustling Lane Avenue. Since then, the brand has grown into an illustration and paper studio. 

Nicole now lives and works out of her home in the Chicago suburbs. She draws her artwork using a blend of colored pencils, pens, and gouache. She’s inspired by the 1920’s, celebrations, travel, polka dots, and the color green. 

Nicole earned her Bachelor's degree in communications from Miami University in Ohio. She then studied Art Direction for a year at the Chicago Portfolio School. She is a self-taught artist, and has learned everything she knows through her lifelong obsession with drawing.

You can purchase her art prints on Etsy. She also shares daily illustrations on Instagram @onlaneave.
