I am Nicola Ellen, a mixed media artist and children's book illustrator living in Sheffield.

I create playful and surreal illustrations from layers of marks and shapes made from oil pastel, pencil and inks.

I recreate my favourite places and create new Worlds in quirky collage illustrations. Sometimes they are scenes that I'd love to jump right in to and explore!

I explore the movement, colour and shape of the landscape in my illustrations and paintings.

I have an Etsy shop where I sell prints and original paintings to decorate your walls in style!
