I'm Dorcas, the owner - illustrator - artist - product designer - marketing director - order packer - customer service agent - etc etc behind DorcasCreates
I am largely self taught and passionate about representing and uplifting black women through illustration. Here you'll find a lot of bold colours, pattern-work and references to my Nigerian heritage. All of my illustrations start from a pencil drawing which I then edit digitally. Outside of illustration I also love lino-printing and sewing.
I am constantly astounded by the positive responses to my work and I hope you leave here feeling inspired, happy and joyful.
When I'm not drawing, shipping orders, or attending events you'll find me in bed with an Octavia Butler novel, eating fancy cakes, on the hunt for the best chicken & waffles in London or screaming off-key at a concert
