Grace's passion for art began in childhood and intensified when she studied painting as an adult. Her adventure in art began in earnest when she moved to Hong Kong in 2001, leaving a sales and marketing career with Procter and Gamble and the American International Group and then earning a Certificate in Foundation Art and Design from Hong Kong University School of Professional and Continuing Education.
Grace paints expressively, foregoing detail in favor of color, texture and loose representation. She enjoys painting the rhythm and chaos of trees, the unexpected character of old doors, and the serenity of still life. She is inspired by the works of Auguste Macke, Amadeo Modigliani and Wolf Kahn, admiring them for their expressive color palette and simplification of forms.
Her creative energy overflows from her own art to Pitter Painter. She finds inspiration from the contagious spontaneity and sparkle of children and thrives on continuously developing creative projects for them.
She is also a founding member and officer of Pintura Circle, a charitable group of artists seeking to help the poor, the needy and the marginalized through their art and their passion for art.
Grace has participated in a solo and several group exhibits in Hong Kong where she lives with her husband and two children.
