Sunny Beast began in 2021 as a home for artwork and illustrated products by Natasha Durley. With a eye towards sustainable materials & giving back to nature, Sunny Beast brings colour and joy into your home.
Natasha, an illustrator, based in Bournemouth, UK, creates vibrant images inspired by her favourite subject, the natural world. As well as making products for Sunny Beast, Natasha works with many other brands, collaborating with clients such as Anthropologie, Kip & Co, Penguin Roundhouse, Apple and the BBC. Past commissions include murals, homeware, stationery, apparel, toys and even gaming apps!
Natasha has also worked on book publications such as the recently released 'What to Look For…series' - a reboot of the well-known Ladybird books, three non-fiction Creature Features books with Big Picture Press and Animals with Quarto Publishing.
Her work begins away from her desk, getting messy with paper-cut shapes and mixed-media mark-making. Once all these elements are scanned, the final artwork is created digitally.
