Hi! I'm Darcie Olley, an illustrator and print-designer based in Essex, UK.


I graduated from studying a degree in Fashion and Textiles at Colchester School of Art in 2018, during which I was selected by fashion designer Sir Paul Smith as the recipient of the Nicole Abbott Award.


My work is full of joy, fun and charm and is inspired by my huge love for animals, nature, flowers, travel, music and film.


I love using a mixture of media including acrylic, watercolour, gouache, pencil and digital techniques to create vibrant and exciting outcomes.


If I'm not not painting you might find me cooking up some exciting vegan food, snuggled on the sofa catching up with my favourite shows, or chilling out with some yoga.


So far my illustrations and prints have been applied to clothing, accessories, greeting cards, homewares, stationary and more. I'm always open to new and exciting projects to collaborate on, so feel free to drop me a message!
