Grace’s wax and gold leaf paintings deal with the eternal narrative where Word and Image are brought together by the Incarnation. The metaphorical language of Scripture, poetry, and the classics, inspire her “Metaphorical Abstractions.” She layers pigments, beeswax, text and gold leaf to make visible the invisible.
She began her art career in Kansas, and continued her art degree at UNC Asheville in North Carolina. She has also studied in Amsterdam, Italy, and Ukraine, and teaches workshops — including a workshop at Luxan Fine Art Academy in Shenyang, China.
