Nicole Maloney was a History Illustration student at the University of Newcastle, New South Wales.
Nicole worked on the illustration of a number of species of seahorses.
During her visit to the Australian Museum she produced sketches of White's Seahorse (Hippocampus whitei), Shorthead Seahorse (H. breviceps), Pygmy Seahorse and the Thorny seahorse (H. histrix).
Nicole stated that working with the specimens is beneficial because "The scientific accuracy of the initial drawings is very important because they are the foundations for the final illustrations".
Nicole visited the Australian Museum on 25 June 2007.
