Welcome to the heArt of NICOLA LESPEARE
Hi, I'm Nicola, a digital illustrator learning the never ending ropes of running a business solo and being the face of my brand - there's no hiding on social media!

My purpose is to create art and life style products that elevate

black women flourishing with fro-fabulous hair

I'm thankful to be supported and do what I love - illustrating black women with fabulous fro's on imaginative celebration cards and stylish lifestyle products.

I feel incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to add more diversity to the celebration card industry, and help you to celebrate the Queens in your life with celebration cards that represent our beautiful shades of black and hair texture.

Vision Becoming Reality

Unable to find a fro-fabulous birthday card of a black girl rockin' her afro for my sisters birthday, I decided to sketch my own unique birthday card. Experimenting with my creative abilities which I hadn't used for some years, I excitedly sketched an illustration of a girl with radiant melanin skin, clutching a bunch of balloons and wearing the biggest afro.

My sister loved her card and was so happy to receive a birthday card that reflected aspects of her physical characteristics, such as her skin tone and hair texture.

Seeing her expression and how she resonated with her celebration card in that moment, made me want to recreate the same happy experience for others. I was aware that there were other people like me, struggling with the same dilemma of being unable to find imaginative celebration cards for people of black heritage. Feeling ignited and inspired, I chose to do something about it.


Nervous and excited, I decided to take action by launching my eponymous company

Nicola Lespeare; a brand specialising in quality celebration cards, featuring

stylish illustrations of black Queens and their fro-fabulous hair!


Due to the support of the community, my celebration cards have been a success (thank you all!)

Feeling even more inspired, I extended my range to tote bags and wall art.

More new collections are in the pipeline.

My Mission

To create a dynamic brand that specialises in creating stylish celebration cards, gifts and

lifestyle products that elevate and celebrate black culture and style.

Mainstream shopping platforms and outlets lack a prominent choice of celebration cards that feature illustrations and images which represent people of black origin.

I want to change that by creating an accessible, dynamic array of lifestyle products that caters to various shades of black complexions. In the future a new collection of products will also be introduced catering for boys and men.

My Vision

To become a leading company synonymous with quality gift products and influential designs

that caters for the diverse shades of black skin tones for both women and men.

What began as simply four celebration cards featuring black Queens rockin' their fro's in 2016,

will continue to grow and become a trusted brand; home to gift and lifestyle merchandise that inspires and is loved globally.
