My name is Nicole.  I am a multidisciplinary Artist & Illustrator based in NYC.


Growing up I spent my childhood doodling in the margins of my school books, daydreaming out windows, and lost in my own imagination. My love of art began when I was small,  as I was raised in the well-known artist community, Manhattan Plaza, surrounded by gifted creatives of all mediums.  As a child through high school, I attended the private school, The Calhoun School, on Manhattan's Upper West Side which boasts such notable alums as Jordan Peele, Peggy Guggenheim, and Ben Stiller.  I continued to study at The Arts Student League of New York, Parsons School of Design, SVA (School of Visual Arts), Lilla Rogers Studio,  along with independent study under the portrait painter, Matt Held. 


Portraiture, Children's Books, Wildlife, Editorial, and Branding are my chief areas of interest. While I am classically trained as a painter, these days I predominantly work digitally and have expertise in Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator as well as Apple Procreate.

Additionally, I am a member of SCBWI (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators. I have frequently exhibited my work in  NYC and Brooklyn art galleries and have clients around the globe.
