Join me on my art journey. Below is my artist statement.
The page also list shows and events that I have participated in, as well as awards and resume.
Grace has a BFA and MA degree in Graphic Design. Her work is influenced by pop art. She draws inspiration from comics and uses black outlines in all of her work. This art is a journey of happiness that use a visual language of humor, nostalgia, color, shape and everyday objects to illustrate that you can
find joy in the simple things in life. She believes that art exists all around us and all it takes to be appreciated is a closer look.
