Grace Holliday is a London based illustrator / mark-maker. Her practice explores detailed drawing techniques to create hand-made works of either archival or narrative quality. With a particular emphasis on process and pens, the way that she makes is intense, often playing with a tension between chance and perseverance to construct marks that leave behind a physical trace of the tools application. Visual rhythms, sense of place and ephemeral existence are all regular themes found within Grace’s personal, as well as commercial projects. Predominantly, such collections of surfaces, patterns and form are made for editorial, print, textiles or installation but Grace is always experimenting and searching for other platforms to explore and projects to become part of.
