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 cute-ness and is mainly inspired by my huge love for animals, nature, flowers, travel, music and film.

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


If I'm not not painting you will find me

cooking up some vegan food, watching Netflix or chilling with some yoga.

So far my illustrations and prints have been applied to clothing, accessories, greeting cards, homewares and stationary, and I'm always open to new and exciting projects to collaborate on.
