My name is Nicolle. I am an illustrator who works and lives in the city of Toronto, in Canada. Since I was small, I have been creating and I followed my dream to OCAD University, where I graduated from the illustration program.

I grew up exploring the woods near my house, reading about animals and watching Studio Ghibli movies on tape, things that I credit to my love of nature and visual storytelling today.

My inspirations to create include 19th century folk art, 1980's anime, midcentury children's books and Art Deco era magazines - and I love all things retro and kitsch.

In my off time I enjoy reading, vegan cooking, spooky stories and exploring the outdoors. I live with my engineering boyfriend and my beloved robot vacuum.
