Jocelyn Rickards (29 July 1924 – 7 July 2005) was an Australian artist and costume designer.

During the 1940s to 1950s Rickards was one of the Merioola Group of artists. The review of her works in a 1948 exhibition by Paul Haefliger was the source of the coined phrase "The Charm School" to describe these Sydney artists.[1][2]

In 1966 Rickards won a BAFTA Film Award for the film Mademoiselle.

In 1967 she was nominated at the 39th Academy Awards in the category of Best Costumes-Black and White for her work on the film Morgan – A Suitable Case for Treatment.[3]
