About DorcasCreates

Sales 3,142
On Etsy since 2012
Video summary: Check out this interview I did with the amazing community platform Jamii (www.lovejamii.com), explaining why I started DorcasCreates :)

DorcasCreates is a visual artist obsessed with big hair and monochromatic patterns

Hello, I'm Dorcas Magbadelo, the designer behind Dorcascreates.

I'm an illustrator and designer/maker from the UK. I've been drawing and creating since I was little; but initially took a more academic path before coming back to my first love of creating.

I'm passionate about creating work that people can identify with - my artwork celebrate the beauty and strength of Black women in particular.

Although all I seem to wear is black(!); I love bold patterns and prints, which shows up a lot in my art work. You'll find a lot of black and white patterns offset by bold colours. When I'm not creating or sleeping, I'm usually putting my Cineworld card to good use, downing copious amounts of tea or swaying offbeat at a concert.

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

It's advised that you frame your art prints as soon as possible and try to keep away from direct sunlight.

Keep pins & earrings away from water and if possible store in a jewellery box.

A hack I learned to clean your pins / earrings is to use toothpaste! Dab a very small amount onto the pin, wipe off dirt or grime and clean with a damp cloth. Pins will be good as new :)

You can also use a jewellery polishing cloth to clean your earrings if you'd rather not go the minty fresh route mentioned above :)

Wholesale availability

Yes I do wholesale!

Pop me an email at info@dorcascreates.com and we can go from there. Please put some info in the email regarding yourself, you shop/business and how you see my products fitting in.
