Hi there! My name is Estella Hickman but friends call me "Stella".
I'm a childrens' book illustrator that dreams of creating the art for a good childrens' book. I'm an enthusiastic artist and love nothing better than putting together a simple and stunning storyboard my clients will love, and then I bring the characters and story to life with watercolors and acrylics.
I started my freelance enterprise, 'Starlet Studios' in 1990 in my condos' loft in Galloway, Ohio, west of Columbus, and this is where I work with my white toy poodle Frankie to keep me company.
As my resume will show you, I have had many fun years creating children's illustrations, painting food art and teaching at the Columbus College of Art and Design. All of which has given me a good work ethic and I can promise my clients complete satisfaction.
