Nicki Graham

MA Children's Book Illustration

Hi, I’m Nicki, a writer and illustrator based in North Hertfordshire. Inspired by fairytales and comics techniques, I use gouache, ink and digital collage to create characters that convey humour and emotion.

I enjoy illustrating picture and chapter books, and experimenting with lettering for book cover designs. As part of my MA in Children’s Book Illustration, I created my first graphic novel in which pigeons inadvertently reverse climate change and save the world. I now have a much greater respect for pigeons.

When I’m not sketching people and animals, or writing stories, I can often be found learning to rollerblade, or in my garden painting intuitive abstract art, assisted by my cat Lizzie. Drop by to say hello, or have a look at my latest creations in my monthly newsletter.
