Grace first came into contact with PAPER Arts when she joined their Mentoring Club in 2015. She went on to use their training space to run mental health craft workshops both for her own social enterprise, and for PAPER Arts.
Since then, she has studied at Falmouth University, and been a part of the Charityworks Graduate Management Scheme. Having been surrounded by young creatives in Falmouth, Grace became a big advocate for the creative industries, whilst also becoming aware of the struggles freelancers face and the lack of support outside of University. In 2020 Grace was thrilled to come back full circle and take over the role of CEO at PAPER Arts. She is excited to be back in Bristol empowering and advocating for other creatives to do what they love for a living
