After receiving a B.A. Honours in Fine Art from the National College of Art & Design in Dublin in 2004, Holly Pereira spent 7 years practicing as a painter, with exhibitions and residencies in Dublin, London, Berlin & Singapore. Hungry, after years as a starving artist, Holly moved into illustration in 2011 where she discovered the exciting world of illustrated type. She returned to education, graduating from The Irish School of Animation in Ballyfermot in 2015. In 2016, she brought sign painting into her practice, and larger scale murals and wall drawings. Major loves are lettering (of course), books and cats.
