Nicola grew up in west Wales where she spent a large amount of her time drawing so you can imagine her delight when she discovered she could turn this into a career. She left Wales to study Illustration and Animation at Kingston University and was lucky enough to have her final project, a picture book titled “Bruno’s Box”, published the following year. Since then she has illustrated several other titles, including her second picture book “Winston and the Wish Department”.
Nicola works with a variety of mediums including acrylic, gouache, pastels and pencil to achieve a fresh, playful quality to her work.
She now works freelance from her studio in South East London.
