Never Miss a New Post.
Nicole Billick lives in Tucson, Arizona with her infant daughter, 3-year-old son, unwaveringly supportive husband, and their sweet (but slightly neurotic) cockapoo. She wrote, "Marvelous Masks" for her toddler, who was so uncomfortable seeing other people wear masks he would say, "Mamma, let's go home." Nicole thought "Marvelous Masks" might be helpful to other families, so she decided to share it with the world.
Nicole has been drawing since she was a kid--staying up late with a flashlight under the covers. She enjoys walking her dog and the challenge of gardening in 110+ degree heat. She's probably feeding the baby or cooking something right now, but likely nothing from her garden. She has a BA from Boston University and an MBA from Yale.
