About the Artist

Grace Gee seeks to create art that challenges the mind and nourishes the spirit while providing avenues to engage in a changing consciousness. She works in a variety of media including sculpture, fiber, artist books and installation work. Her work is influenced by her bi-cultural upbringing and is strongly rooted in spiritual growth, healing and transformation.

Grace is a first generation Chinese Canadian who now resides in Louisville, Colorado. She has lived and worked in Canada, the US and Hong Kong and has traveled widely in Europe and Asia. She holds a BA in Psychology and an MA in Conscious Evolution.

About the Art

My art is about creating space for vulnerability to exist. Healing and personal narrative are strong themes and I work intuitively, with my healing and my artwork moving in step with one another, trading off the lead.

While I often create work that is directly related in subject matter to the issue needing healing, healing can also originate from the creative process or from the respite of being submersed in my work. Aspects of my work are repetitive and meditative, allowing for balance, harmony, and the healing connection of the body, mind and spirit.
