About me

Amy Grimes is a London based illustrator who graduated from Camberwell College of Art in 2014 with a first in Illustration. Particularly inspired by nature and the natural patterns found there, Amy’s bright and bold illustrations, feature botanical motifs and leafy landscapes. Amy’s work is mainly created digitally, using a variety of hand-painted textures, which are scanned and assembled in Photoshop into digital collages. Since graduating Amy has worked for clients including Quarto, White Lion Publishing, Scribbler, UK Greetings and Papier. As well as working on design and publishing commissions, Amy has also set up an illustrated brand selling prints, pin badges, textiles and stationery under the name of Hello Grimes.
