I am very excited to be open to all picture book projects!
I am a freelance illustrator based in Cheshire, England.
I studied art and design, illustration, graphics design and textiles at school. I launched my own illustrated greetings cards business in 2016 where we debuted on the shelves of the design-led Paperchase and Sainsbury’s.
How I can help you - Let’s bring those words to life!
I am a children’s book illustrator with a love of creating quirky characters and bringing my clients stories to life. I provide a fun and enjoyable creative process. I am not scared of using colour but also can work with the most beautiful muted colour palettes.
I always provide my illustrations digitally at a high-res or can create them to your specific needs.
I work closely with my clients so they are fully involved at all times. I understand how daunting the creative process can be, so I am always there to help guide and support throughout.
Whether you have a fully-realised layout already in place, or jusf the simple text of the manuscript, I will work closely with you to bring this to reality.
If you are looking to create a charming and wonderful picture book, you have arrived at the right place and I look forward to hopefully working with you!
Here are just a few testimonials of my work and service:
Sarah Ramsay - Charlie Bubble Picture Book
Working with Nicholas was an absolute pleasure. His work delivered over and above on my expectations. His illustrative style appeals to both children and adults, very colourful and playful. The communication throughout was excellent - Nicholas would update me on the status of the illustrations, request feedback and delivered the product on time.
Hollie Davies - Just Henry Picture Book
Wow! Where do I start.. Nicholas is a true talent and one of the most genuine people I’ve had the pleasure of working with. You won’t be disappointed with his natural creativity and his professional manner throughout . A pleasure to work with!
Liz Lockie - Noah, Blue and The Scooter That Flew Picture Book
Well where do I start with Nicholas! We started working together in May of this year and it has just been wonderful the whole way through.
His communication was impeccable and he worked tirelessly to ensure the work he was produced was nothing but perfect.
