Grace Leaney

I have graduated with a 2:1 BA (Hons) Degree in Illustration & Visual Communication Design from the University of Brighton, and went on to complete a PGCE in Further Education and Training at the University of Brighton to become an Art & Design teacher at a 16+ level. 

I now work as a freelance illustrator and designer between Hastings and London, taking commissions, running workshops and tutoring.

My work varies from playful hand-lettered designs to loose and grungy illustrations, influenced by weirdos, weirdness and the mundane peculiar.
