What i love to do:
My Name Is Grace
One thing I know for sure is that I absolutely love creating artwork equally as much as I love it when others enjoy it. Another thing I know is that I like wearing t-shirts & going on adventures. In my life, some days an adventure means climbing a mountain while other days it means sculpting one, but they honestly feel like the same thing to me. Even though the most obvious way my art is recognized is through my sculptures & paintings, my greatest creative pursuit is that my whole life would be one giant artwork, including things as simple as cooking a meal or visiting with a friend. I hope that whether you wear one of my sculptures around your neck or hang one of my paintings on your wall it will inspire you to go on whatever adventure you are called to, fully embracing the unique art you were made to create in any form it takes.
We're always ready for an adventure...The National Parks are our favorite place to visit.
Yoga, biking, running, hiking, kick boxing, pilates, you name it, I'm game!
Being on the water is the best. I'm usually paddle boarding while Jordan's catchin' the big one.
Cooking is probably my favorite daily activity. We make really good fish tacos with Jordan's fresh-caught fish!
I teach art classes at the local nursing home. My students are the cutest things.
My Earth Clay Journey
2004: When I was 10-years-old I started my first art business, Grace's Gracious Gifts.
2012: Clay magnets became my top seller as I discovered my love of working with polymer during my high school art classes.
2016: I worked as a substitute teacher & an illustrator after graduating from SDSU in Brookings, SD, with a degree in art education.
2018: I put teaching on hold & started working full-time as an artist.
2020: Currently I sell my Earth Clay artwork nation-wide at various retail locations & national park visitor centers as well as art shows & online! I feel incredibly blessed to do what I love every day.
