About the Artist
Grace is an oil/mixed media artist crafting whimsical portals with an old-world vibe to the ocean from the shores of Nova Scotia. Her art is inspired by the vastness of the ocean and how it makes her feel swept up in something big. Her work translates the calming, soul-satisfying feelings she gets on canvas so others can experience it anywhere in the world. She enjoys standing at the edge where the tide and beach meet, tasting sea salt spray on her tongue. This gets her out of her head to live in the moment and feels refreshed.
Grace takes many pictures when she walks along the coast. While these serve as reference material, her work is described to look more like a dream world, which uplifts both mind and spirit.
When a brain injury sidelined her career in Toronto, Grace took to coping and recovering by painting landscapes and waterscapes, selling her first works in-person and online. Featured in provincial publications and group shows online and in person, her landscape paintings have been commissioned and collected across Canada and the United States. Grace works from her home studio, creating and shipping art to collectors as well as having her art represented by Red Sky Gallery in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
