My name is Nicole Heidaripour and I’m a freelance illustrator, designer and print maker. I work from my studio on the north coast of Cornwall.
My work is inspired by the relentless impact of the coastal elements in the landscape, the local people and on my surroundings. My current long form project is a series of portraits of wind-pruned trees in and around Cornwall.
In addition to my own work, I also work on a variety of commercial projects including editorial, jacket design, book illustrations and brand development as well as a range of private commissions.
The Wind pruned trees collection
Illustrating the wind pruned trees that feature so heavily along the north coast and moorlands of Cornwall has become a long term personal project for me.
I began drawing them during my first winter living in Cornwall over a decade ago and they are a feature of the landscape I am continuously recording and revisiting as the seasons progress.
As the winter approaches they appear most prominently, their leaves long gone and a little more weathered by the relentless elements than the winter before.
Looking ahead, I am planning to draw a variety of wind pruned trees around the country and coast, recording them as a stark reflection of the elements that constantly shape the landscape.
