Nicole works from her tiny Melbourne apartment with her two cats. Inspired by the natural world, she spends her days creating illustrations and jewellery while listening to audiobooks.
Originally a painter, Nicole changed disciplines in 2014 and began working as an illustrator under the name Trot Blossom. Her style has always been marked by the blending of intricate details with bold, bright colours and her subjects have long been inspired by animals and nature.
In early 2019, Nicole decided to branch out again into the world of jewellery. Under the name Artist Made Earrings she crafts each piece by hand. Every pair is unique as Nicole is always trying to push herself creatively. Meaning that no two designs are the same.
