Collection: Nicole Duquette



Nicole Duquette is an illustrator, creative enthusiast, and lover of adventuring, discovering, and collecting. She is passionate about color and design, and takes great pleasure in sending greeting cards and postcards to enthusiastic recipients! With her husband Matt, she owns an art supply store and gallery, in their home city of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where they focus on their shared mutual creative passions. 

Nicole has a degree in Art from the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design and has been a working artist since 2008. Her Hello: USA series of imaginative maps found an immediate home with our customers across the country. People cannot get enough of her charming designs and colorful depictions of fun reminders from each state, captured in their own unique shape! Begun in 2013, and inspired by a cross country road trip, this year Nicole completed her 50th state! 

Nicole’s work has also been featured in Uppercase Magazine and she is the sole proprietor and creator of Hello Niccoco, where she designs, prints, and packages art reproductions and other illustrated goods. She encourages other artists to; “explore their creativity, build community, and have meaningful conversations through art.”

Never found without a pencil, sketchbook, and fine-liner pen, Nicole's HELLO: USA artworks always begin as hand drawings before being transformed digitally. Nicole says, "The tactile quality of the tool to paper is a joy!" When she isn’t in the studio or the store, she can be found reading, gardening, hiking or daydreaming of her next travel adventure.
