Oh hi! I’m Helen,
an illustrator & designer
from Philadelphia :)



My work revolves around my love for the natural world and my passion for equality and mental health adovacy. I am most interested in feelings of comfort and belonging, especially in examining the systems that govern us and reimagining a brighter (and more colorful) future.

Outside of my artistic work, I spend some of my days working at STUMP, tending to plants and getting my hands dirty. For fun, I practice yoga, nap, and watch silly videos on my phone.

If you’d like to get in touch with me, shoot me an email at hello@helennichols.com 
or hop in my Insta dms ! 

Check out my resume here, if you’re into that sort of thing.


Thanks for checking in! <333




Gratitudes !

One of my favorite sayings for many years has been “I am a mosaic of everyone who has ever loved me”. I know I would not be the person I am today without help from those who have cared for me over the years. I walk with treasures of all the friends, family, aquaintances, and strangers I’ve met and I am forever thankful for all the love I have been given in my life. <3
