Grace is a visual artist and scientist who creates haunting, detail-intensive oil paintings and sculptures based on images from her childhood and her research in a broad range of fields. She is especially interested in paradoxes inherent in science, history, and beauty. Grace is currently earning her Ph.D. in Geology at the University of Texas at Austin. Her educational background is multidisciplinary and comprises degrees and experiences in evolutionary biology, anthropology, museum preparation, and forensic autopsy, but the visual arts have always remained its foundation since she was a little girl. Grace has received several grants and awards, most notably the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation for the Arts Grant. She has additionally been included in a number of exhibitions, including the Junior Scholarship Exhibition at the Salmagundi Club in New York City and the Young Contemporaries Exhibition at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art in Charleston, South Carolina.
