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 to 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 artworks 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.
