CREATORS

Nicole lives in Canberra Australia and is interested in way too many things for one lifetime, but she is giving it a good hard go. Nicole is on a mission to tell the stories of animals who don’t have a voice of their own. After visiting Thailand and meeting elephants who had suffered terribly throughout their lives, telling the story of these beautiful creatures was something she knew she needed to do.

Demelsa lives in England. She painted all of her magical pictures of Ella on a digital tablet. Her artistic creations are guaranteed to make you smile and see the world a bit differently.
