Announcement    --------------------------------------------------

Hi! I'm Sandy, the designer and illustrator behind Moon and Sparrow Illustration. I find inspiration in the everyday moments of life; as I always say in my children’s workshops, it’s easy to find good stories everywhere!

I use a combination of traditional materials (acrylics, gouache and pencils) and digital illustration to create rich and colourful textured images that tell these stories through maps, portraits, or the Anatomy of a Heart series.

"I feel there is a specialness to the ordinary, in fact the more ordinary an experience is, the more I connect to it. The stories of parenting, of being part of a family, or those stories hiding in our favourite cities and neighbourhoods. Oh, and Dogs."

My work can be found on various surfaces (fabric, paper, stationery, posters - and soon - giant mugs!) I also work as a children’s book illustrator and author, and am currently working on the 3rd and 4th editions of my comic book for young kids.

I do lots of events around Toronto and Montreal. Sign up to the newsletter to hear more about my work! Www.moonandsparrow.com/newsletter

*** I am not currently taking wholesale orders

*** My work is available for licensing - please contact me to discuss any images you would like to license.

Thank you for reading,

How I started drawing my Custom Illustrations and Maps

I am in illustrator and maker of Things.

My work is inspired by my own childhood, my children, and the funny tender world around me.
I enjoy using both storytelling and illustration to create my custom pieces. I like to work from photos of the people I am drawing, and I ask for stories and anecdotes to inspire joy and nostalgia in each and every piece.

I use a mix of hand drawing, painting, and digital drawing to create drawings that also incorporate language and alphabet. I have a lifelong obsession with French and love to mix french and english to create "bilingual illustrations".

I live in Montreal with my husband, our 2 kids and a rescue dog Indy.

I have worked on 6 kids books (picture books, comic books and early reader middle grade novels).

Please have a look around my site and drop me a line. I love getting messages from you all.

Welcome to Moon and Sparrow. I'm Sandy; Illustrator and Silly Person. I am a map-maker, story-teller, story-telling-map-maker, and maker of books (stay tuned for my first book coming out in Spring 2019)!

Everything I make is made to make you feel happy for a time or place you want to remember forever. Even if it's a moment that makes you cry your eyes out (See The Anatomy of a Heart series) - these special milestones that make a life.

I love Christmas, and spend way too much time creating a new line of holiday cards every year. If you sign up for my newsletter you'll receive pre-order sales notices on these in November
