Sally Darby

Illustrator & Surface pattern designer from the U.K.

Hello, my name is Sally Darby and I am an illustrator and surface pattern designer from the U.K.

Ever since I was a child I have loved creating characters and I am lucky enough to be doing this as my job today. I love creating fun and vibrant characters for a range of uses, from greeting cards to fabric collections and children’s books.

My artwork is full of energy and happiness with cute and playful characters. I aim to bring joy to other people and hopefully make them smile. My inspiration comes from nature documentaries, drawing animals at zoos, botanical gardens, theatre shows, and folk art.

I always try to include a narrative in my work and can imagine my characters living their lives within my pictures.

Visit my website and say hello if you are interested in commissioning me for freelance work or exploring licensing opportunities.

My licensing portfolio is represented by Hannah Curtis at Creative Sparrow.
