Nicole Jarecz is a fashion illustrator based in Detroit, MI. For as long as she can remember she was always attracted to drawing and creating but found that fashion illustration was her passion.
Nicole graduated from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan in 2010 with a BFA in Illustration. The real adventure began when she moved to Paris, France. She lived, worked and drank lots of French wine in Paris from 2010 to 2015. Much of her inspiration came from living in Paris and from traveling throughout Europe.
Nicole creates feminine pieces that are made with graphite, watercolor, ink, charcoal and colored pencil. It’s all about a feeling and an attention to detail that makes her work different than other fashion illustrations. Nicole strives to find a balance between being playful and precise in her work by combining traditional and digital methods. Her work can be seen in publications and magazines all over the world as well as in private collections.
Nicole is now working in Detroit as a freelance illustrator and is enjoying being a mama to her two little girls.
