Bunny Trail Studio hatched early in 2019 as a name for the creative space of illustrator, Nicole Manuel.

Nicole’s illustrative work often portrays adorable animal characters, whimsical motifs inspired by nature and hints of hand lettering. She also has a passion for telling stories both real and imagined. Her hope is that her work can be a celebration of the beautiful world around her and bring joy to others. She loves to work in both traditional (watercolour, ink, marker, graphite, coloured pencil) and digital media.

Nicole studied illustration at Emily Carr University, where she received her BFA. She also has a BSc in Genetics, but that is a story for another time… a future graphic novel perhaps? She lives in Winnipeg, Canada with her husband and their ridiculously fluffy cat. When she is not drawing, you might find Nicole curled up with a book sipping on her favourite tea (which is usually green or peppermint).

Let us not become weary in doing good,
for at the proper time we will reap a harvest
if we do not give up.
