Illustrating a world of wildlife
Nicky's designs are based on the beautiful, jurassic coastline in Swanage, Dorset. She creates hand-illustrated textile products that begin life as detailed, drawn designs. All of her products are also sewn by hand to create long-lasting, beautiful items to decorate both the individual and the home.
Nicky started her journey into illustration after completing a Master's Degree in Bournemouth. This opened a whole new world of digital colour, which complemented her background in fine art. Alongside Nicky's education, the intricate details and patterns found in nature are what really inspire her. Since graduating, Nicky wanted to turn her drawings of things found in nature into something different. Luckily for her, she was blessed with a nan who is cleverly skilled at all things fabric! Nicky is constantly learning and perfecting new skills in her work with fabric, as well as continuing to produce original paintings and commissions.
