Hi! I'm Sandy, the designer and illustrator behind Moon and Sparrow Illustration, and one third of Marché Nënë (coming to Toronto this Mother's Day Sunday May 8th for a one day Pop up Shop! For more info visit www.marchenene.com)

​My work is inspired by my own childhood, my children, and the funny tender world around me. I also am in love with language and enjoy integrating both French and English into my work, illustrating alphabets and names using bilingual images (yes, that's a real thing!) I also enjoy telling stories through maps - I adore making maps of the places and eras that I feel connected to.

I use a mix of hand drawing, painting, and digital drawing in my work.

I do lots of shows around Montreal - follow me on Facebook at facebook.com/moonandsparrow or on my blog at www.moonandsparrowblog.com to find out where I am next!

About

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 and our two little kids. All my illustrations and products are drawn and printed by hand either in my smoke and pet-free studio or by my printer in Quebec City (the large scale posters).

I am one third of Marché nënë - a collective of designers and creators from Montreal focussing on the kids' market.

Please have a look around my site and drop me a line. I love getting emails from people stopping by to read here.

**Wholesale inquiries are very welcome! Please contact me, Sandy, at hello(at)moonandsparrow(dot)com to get your paws on our wholesale catalogue.

*** My work is available for licensing. I also license much of my art through Adzif (wall decals) and A Fresh Bunch (everything else).

Welcome to Moon! and Sparrow. I'm Sandy; Director, Illustrator and Silly Person. I am also a mother, so the products I create come from a place of wanting to create loveliness for your child but also from the practical sensibilities of my mother brain.
I believe every child's bedroom should have things that make them feel safe, happy, and silly.
Our complete line includes Baby's First Year book (custom version available!), illustration, custom illustration, bilingual Name Prints, Maps (a new bilingual map of Canada on the way!) and a line of stationery.

Payment
Payments are done through PayPal, unless specifically arrange otherwise (Can't use Paypal? contact me, we'll work something out)

Orders are processed before being shipped out (within 2-3 business days of ordering).
If you are not happy with your purchase(s) please let me know. (Of course I won't let this happen!) but I can accept returns or exchanges in unused, brand new condition within 7 days (excluding shipping charges). Please contact me immediately if you have to return an item. If you have any questions about fit, please make sure to ask me before your purchase.
All taxes are included in the Etsy price. Let's make life easier for everybody!
Shipping
I ship small packages (one pack of cards, eg) through regular post (unless customer requests a rush shipment -- in which case I can accommodate the request and let you know the cost once shipped). Anything larger I ship priority post which is usually delivered in 4 business days *in Canada* and much less in Ontario and Quebec.

For US and European customers, please allow about 2 weeks for arrival of your product. Could be more, could be less, but the Canada postal system is a lot slower than in the US.

I ship to the address given on Etsy, not Paypal. Please inform us if another address should be used.

Customer can request a Fed Ex shipment -- and costs will be adjusted.
Refunds and Exchanges
In the event that your Moon! and Sparrow purchase arrives damaged or that the quality is not up to standard, arrangements will be made to return the item and reimburse the customer at the business' expense.
Additional policies and FAQs
We do accept custom and wholesale orders. All wholesale orders need to be made within 2-3 weeks during the Christmas season (depending on number and where they are going). Please contact us for details at hello [!at] moonandsparrow.com
