My name is Nicholette. I have been a working artist for as long as I can
remember–and am always creating unless I'm experiencing a power outage,
existential crisis or running around outside.
I attended Missouri State University and the Kansas City Art Institute, graduating
with an Associate's of Arts degree in 2012 and a Bachelor's of Fine Arts degree in
Illustration in 2016.
In 2014, I began working with The Reading Reptile, a nationally renowned children's book store, to further develop The Rabbit hOle, an interactive museum for the children's book. I was responsible primarily for fabrication and art direction, creating papier mache models and prototypes of immersive exhibits for the proposed "explorastorium." Work at The Rabbit hOle evolved frequently, also including graphic design, event planning and volunteer coordination. I contributed to The Rabbit hOle creative team until they found their permanent project space in North Kansas City, where they are continuing to do fundraising.
In 2018, I began working as an Art Director and Visual Designer for dvm360, a veterinary media company. dvm360 includes two veterinary conferences, Fetch dvm360 and Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference along with multiple print publications and information channels. Through the services offered at dvm360, veterinarians can receive their continuing education credits as well as have unique, evidence-based learning experiences.
I started working for engineering firm Lamp Rynearson in 2019. I spear head marketing efforts by managing and executing requests for qualifications and proposals. I generate creative content through writing, design, presentations and event planning and cultivate their brand through positive client communication and development.
I also work as a freelancer, creating illustrations and picture books for children.
