Originally from Dartford, Nicola studied for her BA in Illustration and Animation at Kingston University, graduating with her exquisitely drawn and highly inventive degree show project, The Old and the Bold: A Guide to the Legendary Mushroom Hunters.

Having spent many childhood holidays in Wales with her much-loved older brother and sister, she continues to be greatly inspired by the countryside, folklore and the sea.

In October 2014, she was named the winner of design studio (and supplier of greetings products to M&S) Tigerprint’s ‘Gifted’ illustration competition.

Nicola has illustrated several beautiful book covers including The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place by Julie Berry, The Parent Problem and The Family Fiasco by Anna Wilson, and The Tree that Sat Down, a Collins Modern Classic by  Beverley Nichols.

She is available for both colour and black and white commissions.
