Hi! I'm Nicole, founder and head creative for Juliet and Jack, as well as "co-creator" of my two kids, Jack and Juliet. In former lives I've been an art museum docent, high school English and reading teacher, and a pre-K teacher. Today I'm home with my kiddos and building a creative entrepreneurial life for me and my family.

The idea for Juliet + Jack grew out of an on-going series of lunchbox doodles I began when Jack was in kindergarten. Five years later, those doodles have become a way to document Jack's current interests, record life events in our family, practice daily creativity, and play with ideas for other creative projects. Those creative projects include artwork for kids, surface designs for variety of products, and even children's books that I hope to publish some day. Links to where my artwork and designs are available for sale can be found here. Those interested in licensing my work can contact me here.

In addition to creating artwork and surface designs, I'm passionate about literacy, creativity, and the connections they help kids build to themselves, the adults in their lives, and the world around them. On the blog I'll share the books our family loves, resources for parents and educators, plus art projects and other activities for kids of all ages.

Thanks for visiting and I hope we see you again and again! -Nicole
