Oh, hello there! I'm Nicole, let's just get right into the nitty gritty and get to know one another! I live in Ottawa, Canada with my husband; Patrick, and my beautiful baby girl, Ophelia. Let's not forget about our fur babies, Winston, our grey cat & our little black pom; Coco Chanel. I graduated with honours in both Interior Design from Sheridan College & Graphic Design from George Brown College and loved every. single. minute. of it! I’m crazy about colours, patterns and design, and truly am happiest when I'm designing, creating & glue-gunning!
I have been immersed in the design industry for more than 10 years. Throughout this time, I have had the privilege of working and designing for independent & corporate clients. The experiences and lessons along the way have helped me hone in on my creative flair and work it into stationery styling & custom branding. My love for designing for events grew from planning my own crafty celebrations & winter wedding and I can’t wait to meet you and hear all about yours!
