My Bio


My name is Nicola and I'm a full-time illustrator from the UK. I love mark making and detail in everything I do. I've enjoyed creating a lot of different kinds of art, but most recently I fell in love with portraiture, especially animals. Inspired by my own furbaby, Hazelnut the cavapoo puppy <3

Hey! This is my first time on Deviantart in quite a few years. My work has changed a vast amount. Some of the work I've posted is old, but most is new. I've gone full-time as an illustrator, so if you would like to commission me I'm only a note away. Cheers! NG

Your attention to detail (especially int he animal portraits) is incredible! The basic colors are a great choice in making the subjects pop out. Keep up doing the work you do, it is really unique. <3
