Clients enjoy working with Grace because she’s flexible, full of ideas, and makes sure she brings her best to every project. A love of history, literature, classical music and psychology help to feed Grace with inspiring concepts, while some of her main visual influences come from the world of photography – including Alex Prager and William Eggleston.
Based in London, she comes from a creative background and has a degree in Illustration from Arts University Bournemouth with first class honours.
Before she starts drawing, Grace chooses a palette of up to four colours and this is what will set the tone for the image she creates. Working digitally using Procreate and Photoshop, she develops a composition by exploring different angles, and hones her drawing or painting style to suit the project.
Big, bold, dramatic and colourful, Grace’s style has a touch of naivety that adds to its charm. Narratives are enhanced by her use of facial expressions, textures and touches of detail, setting her illustrations apart from the rest.
