Grace Helmer, originally from Brighton, has a degree from Camberwell College of Arts focused on illustrations. Apart from being a solo artist she also works with Day Job Studio, “a collective of artists and illustrators who collaborate on workshops, exhibitions, books“. She have worked with prestigious clients such as Apple, Google, The Independent to name the most known. She has also had two awards already, namely V&A Student Illustrator of the Year 2013 and It’s Nice That ‘The Graduates’ 2012.
In an interview just after she graduated she siad that “A few times I was advised by tutors not to paint but ignored them and persevered. […] my first paintings were definitely a bit rubbish – but learning to defend my ideas and developing a bit of self-belief was very important” . It is very important for anyone to have as her basis some uniform rules and upon them create her life and career, and Helmer dis so beautifully. Enjoy.
