American born artist, Grace O’Connor, came to the UK aged 16 with dreams of becoming an artist. She began by working as a set painter for the BBC on a variety of programmes including ‘The Performers’ and ‘Top of The Pops’, all the while focussing on producing her own work. Her drive and determination led her to become the winner of Young Artist of the Yearas part of the Hunting Group prize in 1994, before studying at the Royal Academy School, 1996-1999.
Grace now works out of her studio in Bethnal Green. Her work has been shortlisted for the Jerwood Drawing Prize (2007), and her piece ‘Girl Fight’ was selected for the John Moores Painting Prize and then exhibited during the Liverpool Biennial (2014).
