Nikki grew up in a small village called Shrivenham in Oxfordshire. She studied for her Illustration degree in Swindon and after graduating in 2006 has illustrated books for children since. Nikki spent a lot of her childhood drawing, reading and making lots of mud pies in the garden. To this day she still does the same but gets paid for it too which is lovely and you’ll be pleased to hear the mud pie business is still going strong! Nikki loves creating characters for stories and is hugely inspired by animation and concept artists.
Work to date includes: 1000 Things series for Usborne, Two Little Golden Books, Zippo the Super Hippo from Macmillan, Dinosaurs Don’t Have Bedtimes for Walker Books and a series of Nature Sticker books from Nosy Crow in partnership with The National Trust.View Full Bio
