Grace’s affinity for working with marble drives her art practice. Despite its being a difficult, temperamental, and physically taxing medium, after completing her first marble sculpture some twenty plus years ago, the hook was set. Her subject matter and ideas are multivalent; the stone is the nexus, the constant.
She was born in New Orleans. After flirting with science and earning a degree in chemistry, Grace returned to art. In addition to studying at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Art and taking graduate level art courses at the University of New Orleans, she is enrolled in the MFA program in studio art at the University of New Orleans.
