Hi there! I’m Nina, the artist behind Chic on Paper. 

Although I've always been creative and loved to draw, my illustration business is only been a recent venture. I love to surround myself with beautiful things to make ordinary occasions feel more glamorous.


My goal is to help you feel the same. By adding my luxurious and trendy artwork to your home, office, or business packaging, or by gifting it to a fashion-loving friend, I hope it will bring an air of elegance to your surroundings and inspire you to enjoy every day with more decadence and glamour.

If you have any questions about me or my product, please feel free to reach out at nina@chiconpaper.com. 

With love,

My Process

Here's a standard process to make sure you know what you can expect from working with Chic on Paper, no matter where in the world you're located.

Decide on a concept you’d like illustrated.

It's important to me that when you are commissioning a custom graphic or hiring for live event drawing you're getting exactly what you're hoping for. Clear communication is the foundation of a successful project, so we'll have initial communications to discuss your project at length until we figure out the perfect concept for your fabulous piece of artwork.

Questions we'll be considering are: Sizing for your illustrations, specific requests (i.e. adding that Chanel bag you're dreaming of), and the background story behind the work. 

Once you place your order and send me your reference pictures, I will develop the drafts. After that, you can request up to 3 changes to be made to ensure your artwork is perfect. 

Please allow enough time for this process and account for shipping. Plan ahead for your special occasions, especially holidays, as wait times increase.

Printing & Shipping

Once you approve for printing, I’ll send you the final 8 in x 10 print (unless a different size is requested). All prints are printed on 100lb acid-free archival paper, sealed in a cello wrapper. Every custom order gets a bonus print – the perfect way to start your chic collection! 
You can  get the digital files in PDF & JPEG formats upon request.
