Hi, my name is Nicola, (better known around the web as ‘Nicolpops’), and I am a Scottish illustrator and fibre artist, currently living in Aberdeen.
I have slowly developed my style over the years, often interpreting my love for circus with a touch of the spooky and weird.
Never being someone to focus on only one thing at once, the urge to do something tactile with my hands that I could incorporate with my illustrations was niggling on the back of my mind. I have always had a love for toys and collectable plushies (anyone else still have a loft full of TY Beanie Babies?), so I decided to have a go at turning my character designs into 3D fibre monsters.
As much as I love illustration, I enjoy the process of building with my hands, as well as the sense of calm that the often slow process of working with fibre can bring - this has been especially rewarding over the 2020 lockdown.
In my free time I love to hula hoop, read comics, and look after my plant babies.
Always interested in cool collaborations, just drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
