TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF! WHERE ARE YOU FROM? WHEN DID YOU START? WHAT FIRST GOT YOU INTO SELLING PLANNER SUPPLIES?
My name is Nickey and I started Niche Create. I was born and raised in Toronto and Mississauga!
Niche Create began this past summer as a result of staying home during the pandemic. I used to love making art but haven't touched it for the last 6-7 years since focusing on my teaching career. It used to mostly be traditional art, so it's been a huge learning curve figuring out how to translate it digitally. When I first started creating stickers, I made a few small designs expecting only friends and family to get a few for fun. It's been amazing (and surprising everyday frankly) learning that people actually like my stuff!
My main goal is to share little moments of imagination and wonder with everyone who comes across my pieces. A bonus is that I get to share my Asian culture with everyone through my art.
TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOUR SHOP! WHAT KIND OF STUFF DO YOU SELL? DO YOU HAVE A PARTICULAR STYLE?
Everything in my shop was hand-drawn and designed by me. I have die-cut vinyl stickers, planner stickers, cards, pins, magnets, and keychains. I found it hard to have a specific style as I love experimenting, so you may see a whole variety of themes and ideas, but I love having tons of colours.
