illustrator + cartoonist + hand-letterer + designer
Hello! I'm Nicole. I'm from The Bahamas, but I'm currently living in West Yorkshire (UK) with my pet snake and human boyfriend. After five and a half years of designing cards for Hallmark UK, I jumped into full-time freelance life in January of 2020. I've worked with a variety of clients including Adobe
, Candlewick Press
, the New York Times
, Penguin Random House
, Rebel Girls
, Simon & Schuster
, and Sisters Letter (AARP)
. My comic Barbara
, 2017) was nominated for an Eisner award.
I've been asked to speak to BA Hons Illustration students at Cardiff Metropolitan University (several times) as well as at the Afro Futures Un-conference (2019) in Birmingham. In 2018, I became a Special Visiting Lecturer for Sheffield Hallam University where I get great pleasure in doing occasional teaching sessions with first year illustration students.
My favourite form of procrasti-working is always some sort of creation whether it be bettering my hand-lettering, making animated gifs, chronicling silly life moments or informative sustainability tips in comic form, experimenting with film photography or sewing new garments for myself. But I also dedicate a lot of time to improving my second language (French), reading and, recently, going on forest walks.
