Meet Georgie Grace. She’s the kind of artist who doesn’t just paint or draw – she transforms!

Georgie’s artistic journey began when she was just four years old when she picked up a pen for the first time. To see Georgie now, fulfilling artwork commissioned by Brisbane Airport Corporation for International Day of People with Disability, is to see her artistic career taking flight.

You can support Georgie and purchase her art here.

“I have been drawing since I was very young…I used to draw on anything when I was very young – paper, cardboard, computer, whiteboard, blackboard, mail, bills, my sister’s homework.”

At Help’s Mitchelton Hub, Georgie’s been able to explore various art forms, from pottery to digital art, alongside supportive peers and staff. She creates stunning chalk murals to commemorate special days and whatever’s happening at the Hub and in the world.

Help’s partnership with Brisbane Airport Corporation opened the door of opportunity for Georgie to have her talents recognised by a much greater audience.

Georgie was commissioned by Help to design art to feature on the ‘My Brew’ coffee cups available at Help’s Boronia Brew near the Brisbane Airport.

After seeing her artwork, the team at BNE reached out to commission something new. Her charming designs now decorate tote bags containing information about accessibility at BNE.

These totes were handed out to airport patrons during an activation with the BNE Therapy Dogs and were well-received by many. Georgie and her family were delighted to see the activation and totes in person – everyone was wearing a smile!

When it comes to art, Georgie doesn’t limit herself to a single medium. She explores clay and pottery, digital art, and chalk murals, all of which allow her to share her unique interpretation of the world around her.

Art has long been a medium for people to share new ways of seeing the world, and it’s wonderful to see Georgie’s designs used to celebrate International Day of People with Disability.

“Everyone can understand the feelings in my illustrations and when I draw something they know what I mean,” Georgie explained. “There are interesting and unusual things at the airport, like travellers, friends, families, and workers at the airport doing things that you don’t see anywhere else. Stairs on wheels being driven to the plane, people with bags, drinking coffee, kids and teenagers with tickets, lots of comings and goings, hugging, kissing, crying and trains, taxis and interesting buildings.”

The story of Georgie and her art is only just beginning. It is also a shining example of how much receiving support can positively impact the life of a person with disability. Georgie has flourished in the Help Hub environment where her creativity is nurtured and encouraged.

We are excited to see where Georgie’s art takes her next!
