About the Artist
Although Grace worked in Chicago’s River North Gallery District and as a photographer after graduating with a BFA, she decided to take her creative career in a different direction. Grace now works full time as an Associate Director and art therapist in a partial hospitalization program and in private practice in Northbrook, IL.
Using her art as her own form of self-care. Art in its varied forms serves to provide her with a sense of groundedness and connection that only creativity can provide.
Gestures Broken and Held is a collection of Grace’s work with the image of the hand. Hands remind us of our abilities, mortality, and our connectedness, or lack thereof. They show utility and emotion of the human experience. Paintings and drawings reflect upon different parts of the healing process as well as the shape and form of the hands themselves.
