About Us

Dreamt up in late 2017 and launched in January 2018 by Skye Kelly-Barrett, Roar is a unique art & illustration agency representing a carefully curated selection of the most talented artists worldwide, both established and emerging, within the creative industry. From illustration, animation, fine art, to live drawing and murals, we have the most epic and talented roster around.

At Roar, we believe the artist should always come first, and we pride ourselves on our long-lasting relationships with our artists, working as both an agent and mentor to help nurture both the artists’ creative career, as well as supporting their personal development - we want to make sure all of our artists are reaching their potential, progressing both personally and professionally along the way.
Client satisfaction is important to us, and a successful project is a win not only for the client, but for our artists and the agency too.

Sally Paley
Sally joined the Roar team with a contact book brimming with names from across the publishing, TV, editorial, fashion and commercial art worlds. Part-geek, part-creative, she manages commissions like a pro while using her keen visual eye to develop and expand our roster. She loves sharing tips on London's best art exhibitions, charity shops and restaurants but has terrible taste in TV.

Karina Brace
Karina is Creative Assistant at Roar. In her own words, ‘the best part of my job is exploring new worlds and souls everyday. Art to me is this wonderful expression of self which brings; life, history, vibrancy, understanding and stories untold to a sometimes gloomy world’.

George the office dog
We are a dog friendly workplace and we have a relatively large dog who is often lounging in the office under our desks or on the sofa. His name is George and he is a fox red Labrador (half working, half show, so he is slightly bigger than most gun dog-based labs) who loves a face lick and a crafty croissant.
