Grace Price (b.1990, Essex) always prioritised her deep-rooted love for fine art and photography. After studying A levels locally she chose to apply straight to BA (Hons) Fine Art at Kingston University London, through competitive portfolio entry, skipping a foundation year. After several exhibitions in London, Grace graduated in July 2012 with an upper second class degree and first class dissertation. After a bustling degree show and exploratory three years of painting and sculpture, she now continues her arts practice producing interior collages and installations.
In April 2017, Grace became one of the second cohort for 'The Other MA (TOMA)', a competitive post-graduate course. TOMA has been mentioned in Art Monthly Magazine as a stand out alternative education model with many startups following suit. Since then, Grace has remained a TOMAssociate Alumni member and continues to work with the cohort in Southend-on-Sea.
Grace's portfolio has been included in Aesthetica Magazine (print & digital), featured on the Long List for the Aesthetica Art Prize and had support from the Firstsite 'Collectors Group Bursary Award'. This site reflects the personality and breadth of her contemporary portfolio to date.
Alongside her ongoing art practice, Grace has taught many children & young people the benefits of exploring the arts for creative wellbeing, with a wide range of experience in the pastoral care of young people and delivering contemporary learning experiences.
Since 2015 Grace has worked within the art education sector to create original design and resources, support exhibition interpretation and deliver workshops across cultural organisations such as The British Museum, Firstsite and the Royal Opera House. Grace continues to use her first-class communication and relationship management skills in a creative workplace, as a Learning & Participation Programme Manager.
