My work is inextricably tied to my passion for intersectional feminism. Words are powerful tools that can serve to empower or suppress, and I seek to use them for the the former. I sincerely believe that internalizing and imbibing positive messages are meaningful daily rituals to combat the myriad negative messages we're exposed to.
Compositionally, I take influence from the Dutch tradition of pronkstilleven (decadent still life painting), as well as outsider & American folk art. In positioning myself firmly between craft and art traditions, I hope to do what many women artists & artisans did before me: create beautiful everyday objects that also serve some usefulness beyond their aesthetic value.
One of Grace's most popular items are her wreaths. Grace makes wreaths with statements. She weaves together the political and the pretty, incorporating intersectional feminism in traditionally feminine art.
