Designer for Retail
Nicole DeCamp 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 started her career as a graphic designer in the advertising industry where 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, she spent 13 years designing and illustrating products for an international party supply retailer. 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. And as a result, she has created art for a wide range of retail products including decorative gift boxes, partyware, ceramics, fabrics and garden flags to name a few. “I have always been an artist. It’s really who I am and what I am passionate about. I’m inspired by my surroundings, my friends, my family, nature, and everyday life. I really can’t imagine doing anything else.” Nicole is currently represented by Sagebrush Fine Art. Her licensed gift and home décor products can be found in retail stores all over North America.

"I thrive in fast paced retail markets where change, quick pivots in strategy and deadlines are critical. As a goal oriented designer, I have a positive record in delivering successful projects across the party, gift and décor industries. With a keen eye for design trends and product assortments, I am also seasoned in overseas production while seeing projects from conception to finish product."-Nicole
