My name is Krista Nicole, and I am a 23-year-old graphic designer and illustrator living in Flagstaff, Arizona. I recently graduated from NAU, and then started working here as a graphic designer in the Marketing department! I love drawing girls and plants.
My two passions are graphic design and illustration. I majored in Visual Communication with an emphasis in Graphic Design and a minor in Fine arts while attending NAU. Now that I work as a graphic designer by day and a freelance illustrator by night, I really have the opportunity to use the mediums hand in hand. My true dream job is to be an illustrator full time, but for now doing both is working out well!

Illustration is my passion. I have been drawing my whole life, but working more seriously on developing my illustration style for the past 5 years. I find a lot of inspiration for my work fro m other illustrators, experimental work by photographers, fashion designers, and models, and basically anyone who is doing exciting and different things. This is extremely inspiring to me because it helps me remember that being different is good!

Working as a graphic designer for NAU has given me the chance to put together designs and illustrations that are seen by thousands of people, which is really good exposure and experience. It has given me more connections in the design world of Flagstaff which has led to some really cool freelance clients. Some of the bigger local clients I have recently worked with have been Keep Nature Wild and Theatrikos.
