Nicole DeCamp grew up in a house full of her parent's creativity. Beds were warmed by the handmade quilts made by her mother and items such as furniture and stain glass made by her father. Someone was always creating.
At the age of 6, Nicole began selling her drawings in her parent's restaurant for 10 cents. She always knew she wanted to be an artist and make a living creating. She graduated from Indiana University, where she earned a Bachelor's Degree in Graphic Design. Right after college Nicole went on to become a web designer for high profile clients but always missed drawing, so she decided to pursue her Master's degree. This eventually led her to teach design and illustration at university level. At the same time, she created a business selling handmade stationery that made its debut at the National Stationery Show in 2002. This led to her love of licensing.
Her work has been featured on television and published in magazines including Food Network, People, Party and Paper, Total Licensing and Giftware News to name a few.
