WELCOME TO THE WEBSITE OF ARTIST GRACE GARTON

I am a mixed media artist, illustrator, and a maker of original large and small, hand-painted art-dolls. My studio is nestled amongst large gums and untouched bushland located on the upper eastern shores of the Derwent River.

I have been a full-time career artist since 2006, building up a following with my whimsical landscapes and art-dolls which have sold worldwide.

My work is inspired by the Australian landscape. The contrast of colours found in the natural environment, the twisty limbs of trees and the beguiling and mysteriousness of our fauna are what excites me. Using a variety of mediums in my art has given me creative freedom. I can combine my drawings with found  objects and paint to achieve a feeling of how I see and feel the world around me.

I have a passion for found objects and fabrics which I incorporate into my work to create contrast between textures and pattern.


I am excited to have been asked to take part in Despard's 34th annual summer group show.

I will be exhibiting three new works that I made specifically for this exhibition. The works comprises of a figure and birds in a ephemeral landscape, suggesting glimpses of dreams and memories, from long ago. For more information, please visit Despard Gallery website.
