about me

Hi, I’m Nica.

Currently I am a part-time freelance designer, an owner/operator of a small IT firm, and a full-time Mom. When I’m not working or momming, I love to create. Whether it’s drawing, painting, writing, coding, blogging, or designing, creativity is my soul fuel. I started fledgling studios as a way to share my journey with art and writing and hopefully inspire others to share their stories as well. Thanks for coming to see my little slice of the interwebs. Enjoy your stay!

Some random things about me:

I live in Pennsylvania.
I love everything bagels & cream cheese.
I have 5 pet chickens.
I have a Bachelors of Science in Industrial Design.
I am really good at beating myself up. (I’m working on it.)
Twenty One Pilots is the best band of all time. (I will fight you.)
My cat and dog are both black.
I quit drinking alcohol, but now I’m addicted to Pepsi.¬†
When I can’t sleep, I watch Curious George and I’m out like a light.
Karaoke is my jam.
I am in a book club. (Yes, I’m that kind of nerd.)
I want to be a runner, but I hate running (Working on this too.)
I love to make people laugh.
