'I asked Nicola to help with the design of quite an unusual image / logo for a new musical.  Through thoughtful questioning and discussion she was able to ascertain what I had in mind and was able to make suggestions where I was uncertain about certain details.  Work arrived on time at a reasonable price and was of a high standard and particularly imaginative.  Will look to using Nicola again in my future projects.'

'Nicola has produced some vivid, evocative and atmospheric artwork for the covers of a series of children's books I wrote - on time and exactly what the books needed. She is great to work with and full of ideas, imagination and creativity. '

'Nicola’s art is simply incredible. She is able to incorporate so many details into everything she does. We’ve had 2 commissioned pieces done by her and plan for many more! Our first piece was a name plate done when our son was born. She incorporated all our family details into one cohesive piece with his name. It hangs proudly in his room. She was also able to create a family portrait drawn from a favorite photo of the 3 of us. Her work is always fast, even when shipped across an ocean, and extremely creative! She is able to really cater to each piece, asking for color palettes or design choices, so her work fits into your home. We cannot say enough good things about her and all of her work!.'

'I first began working with Nicola some seven or eight years ago. As a children’s writer, I wanted an illustrator who could interpret my characters and bring them to life. I was not to be disappointed. Nicola has worked on five of my books to date, illustrating the covers and content. What I particularly like about Nicola is the way she can take basic instructions and transform them into something magical. She does not simply reproduce what you show her, although she can easily do that if that is your wish. I like the way she thinks outside the box.

 

For example, Nicola created a map of an imaginary sci-fi world. Which was brilliant for the book but did not look quite right on my new website as the website page already had a space background. Her solution was to change the shape and create a see-through version, which simply looks stunning.

 

What I find exciting is to see my characters come to life and have a personality that Nicola captures perfectly. They almost speak to you. If you want a first-class illustrator, who does not overcharge and delivers on time, then I would not hesitate to recommend Nicola.'
