Nikkie Stinchcombe is an illustrator based in Toronto. She has 4 years experience working in house as an Illustrator/Art Director in the realm of education for animation and motion graphics. Concurrently she has over 5 years experience working as a Freelance Illustrator on various projects including graphic design, iconography, mobile game & tabletop game assets, book covers and character design for film and television.

Nikkie graduated from Sheridan College with her Bachelors Degree in Applied Arts Illustration in 2014. In her fourth and final year, her illustration thesis focused on women in mythology; specifically the study of the goddess and her representation and symbolism in ancient cultures. Years following graduation, she continues to read, study and explore women in mythology which remains her central focus of inspiration for self driven projects. In her spare time she enjoys vending at comic conventions and participating in gallery exhibitions and illustrative anthologies for both self-promotion and fun. Notable anthologies include Ladies of Literature Vol 2, 1,001 Knights and Our Stories In STEM.
