Holly Pereira

Holly Pereira is an illustrator who specialises in illustrated type and lettering, murals and sign painting.

After receiving a B.A. Honours in Fine Art from the National College of Art & Design in 2004, she spent 7 years practising as a painter,
with exhibitions and residencies in Dublin, London, Berlin & Singapore.

Hungry after years as a starving artist, she moved into illustration in 2011, where she discovered the exciting world of illustrated type.
She also returned to education, graduating from The Irish School of Animation in Ballyfermot in 2015.

In 2016, she introduced sign painting into her practice and brought her work to a larger scale with murals and wall drawings.
