About Me

Art Painting | Art Dolls

I am an artist based in Tasmania.  Originally from Sydney where I studied art at Liverpool technical college and Sydney City Art Institute.
After completing my Bachelor of Visual arts I turned my hand to follow a career in the   animation industry which I have been working on and off for the past 27 years.

During this time I relocated to Hobart to further my art studies and work in animation as head of design. In 2006 I decided dedicate my time to work as a full time artist.

My work as a mixed media artist and doll maker has been well received and has been gaining interest from local and international buyers. Currently my art works involve larger hand painted art dolls and assemblage art based on Eastern European folktales conceived in the Australian environment.

Grace is an artist in residence at Salamanca Arts Centre and works part time teaching art to young children and adults.

About Grace Garton

I love the tactile nature of working with fabric. Once sewn and stuffed I have everything that a painter has but I can also sculpt the parts and create an environment for them to inhabit.
Doll making has a rich history often associated with childhood and nostalgia, something I am deeply interested in and from which I can source inspiration.
