Dorcas Magbadelo has been illustrating as DorcasCreates for 6 years but was always creative growing up - sewing, knitting, baking, painting, printmaking:
"I feel like I've dabbled with everything. Turns out it's somewhat hereditary as my maternal grandfather was a tailor in Nigeria when my mum was growing up. I try to add that element of my heritage to my work; I'm inspired by Yoruba textiles and love playing with mark-making and pattern work in my illustrations."
