Grace is a Hong Kong-based artist and art educator.

 

Her passion for art,  love of color and texture, obsession with all things worn and weathered, and her zest for sharing everything artsy-fartsy with children continue to shape her artistic journey.

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 marketing and sales career with Procter and Gamble and the American International Group and earning a  Certificate in Foundation Art and Design from Hong Kong University.

 

Grace paints expressively, foregoing detail in favor of color, texture and expressive representation.  She enjoys painting the unexpected character of old doors, the rawness and individuality in the human form, and the serenity of still life.  

 

For her, the creative process is an absorbing experience of form and color.  The buzz of creating a composition, the dilemma of simplifying and capturing what is essential.  The challenge of using color expressively, of juggling balance and movement, light and dark.  The cycle of applying paint, stepping back, going over it again to add something new without erasing everything old.  Of blending and scraping and creating texture.

 

Her creative energy has overflowed beyond her own art and given birth to Pitter Painter, painting classes for children (www.pitterpainterhk.com).   She has participated in solo and group exhibits in Hong Kong where she lives with her husband and two children.
