Darcy Allan is an illustrator + designer + cat lady based in Oakville Ontario, Canada. Growing up, her younger sister Hilary had a pocketful of nicknames she loved to bestow upon Darcy. Among them Doedee was a favourite and stuck well into adulthood.
Darcy graduated from Sheridan College in 2011 with a BAA in illustration and also received her diploma in creative graphics from NBCCD in 2007. From 2013-2017 Darcy owned and operated Tea With Gladys, a small children's art studio in downtown Oakville. She taught young children all the wonders of art and how to make the perfect bow.
Outside of arting, Darcy is an avid runner, crocheter, thrifter + cat mom to her grey princess Penny. She also loves a good ghosty movie, but almost always regrets watching once in bed for the night.
