nicole creed has been a consumer and collector of cute products most of her life. as a child she was often found begging her parents to purchase any item in a sanrio store.  she learned early that filling her space with cute things made life full of joy.

she strives to infuse her work with that same joyful feeling and to spread a smile with every illustration made.

she enjoys using both traditional and digital mediums including ink, gouache, watercolor, & colored pencil. she expresses herself through hand-drawn lines and hand lettering. her work is largely inspired by folk and Japanese design. 

Nicole is a geek through & through. she aspires to collaborate with brands like Loungefly, Blizzard Entertainment, Sanrio, & Square Enix. 

She spends her personal time watching anime, and playing overwatch & final fantasy with her husband & pup.
