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 stained glass made by her father. Someone was always creating. Nicole started as an artist at the age of 5, when her father sat her in a chair at their family-owned restaurant and allowed her to sell her work to the customers for 10 cents. Her elementary school friends would also pay her a small fee to draw pictures for them while on the playground during recess. It was during that time that Nicole knew what she wanted to do with her life...make her living by creating art and have her own business.
She graduated from Indiana University, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in graphic design and started her career as a graphic designer in the advertising industry. She spent 7 years creating websites and print related materials for large, nationally recognized clients but as an experienced artist as well, she missed drawing and painting.
As a result, Nicole transitioned and received her master’s degree in Drawing and then spent 13 years designing and illustrating products for an international party supply retailer while starting her art licensing journey as a side business. In 2017 the talent, confidence and experience she developed there allowed her to branch out into having her own full time freelance design and art licensing business, ND Art and Design. She has created art for a wide range of retail products including decorative gift boxes, partyware, ceramics, fabrics and garden flags and much more.
Her work has also been featured on television and published in magazines including Food Network, People, Party and Paper, Total Licensing and Giftware News to name a few.
