Born in Warwickshire in 1969, Nicola Kimberlin grew up in the city of Coventry and now lives and works in the pretty seaside town of Ilfracombe, North Devon.  Encouraged to draw from a very young age by her father, she has no formal training beyond secondary school art lessons.  Specialising in wildlife and pet portrait drawings, she has chosen to work in the beautiful medium of coloured pencil, which allows her to capture her subjects in the finest detail.
