Detroit, MI, United States
Nicole Jarecz is a Detroit-native who graduated with a degree in illustration from the College for Creative Studies. Her delicate and feminine illustrations are a result of playing with graphite, ink, watercolor and found-textures digitally. She finds her inspiration from everyday events, fashion, traveling, people-watching and living in her city.
For a fresh start in 2017, Nicole Jarecz has decided to illustrate everything luxe. From Moët & Chandon fine champagne, to Dolce & Gabbana iconic sunglasses to Ladurée's famous Parisian store fronts. These pieces highlight Nicole's love of feminine color, simple composition and fashion.
For its Fall/Winter 2014 issue, Atlanta magazine asked Nicole to illustrate the Southbound publication. The subject: a map made of the most popular attractions around 5th Avenue South from Naples, Florida. For each of them, a representative icon has been drawn to help the Fashionistas to find tasty croissants or Tracy Negoshian’s flagship store.
Nicole Jarecz, whose works endlessly evolve, is proud to share with you her last realizations. First of all, silhouettes realized in the magazine Commons&Sense in Japan for an article about Tiffany jewels . Then, a patchwork of clothes and accessories for gifts. A scene of a bike in spring, very smart and with pastel colors. And, last but least, an illustration created for Ford USA. To see more of her recent work, visit her portfolio.
