Her presentation and delivery style is flexible, adaptable and able to suit any desired topic, location and audience. Her teaching skills enable her to read a group of children and engage them immediately.

“Thank you SOOOOO much. I really enjoyed it. I loved the water colours.”

“I really liked the tricks and tips. My favourite part was the painting.”

“You are so good at drawing. Thank you for letting us use your water colours.”



“Just letting you know that our Books In Homes presentation today was AMAZING! The students (and teachers) loved the talk from Nicky Johnston – as well as her illustrations. She told our students about how much she loved the editing process when writing and drawing, which made the children stop and think that not only do you edit the written word, but as an artist you also have to edit and change your drawings to make them the perfect final copy. We feel so lucky to have such a great role model visit our school.”
