About Lee Grace

Creative:

I have been working as a creative for over 20 years.  I am currently the Creative Director of Waterford Based Digital & Brand Strategists Márla Communications. Illustration is always at the core of my development process. If I can use It effectively within a project then I do. Working in digital and traditional methods, I consider my illustration style to be quite loose but also detailed.
