My name is Nicholle; Nikki for short – I go by Y2Hecate pretty much everywhere online, since forever (~1997), and I’m a part-time professional artist in the US. I’ve been drawing for as long as I can remember, but pursuing art as a career since high school, circa 2000. I have a BFA in Studio Art, with a concentration in Sequential Art (Comics & Animation), and currently do freelance/commission work in my spare time.

For my day job, I’m a purchasing Assistant and Engraving associate at an awards & recognitions company. I order parts & supplies, as well as play with lasers to engrave trophies, plaques, medals, etc. for all kinds of people and events – Academics, sports, government, personal fun, parties, and so on. We have customers all over the country and sometimes world, so if you’ve ever gotten trophies, plaques, medals, ribbons, lapel pins, or certificates – especially from a school – there is a chance that it came from my workplace.
