Multimedia artist Grace Willard strives to create work that highlights the beauty of the world around us by depicting the creatures and spaces that she believes enhance our lives. She has been a member of the Nina Haggerty Collective since 2013 and primarily works in acrylic paint and textiles. Grace expresses her love of nature through naturalistic renderings of animals and landscapes in her paintings, as well as in her detailed tapestry work that combines Grace’s appreciation for both intricacy and tactility.
Grace aims to give her viewers a mental escape to tranquil spaces through her art by emphasizing the peace and joy that can be found in nature. Recently, Grace has been interested in using endangered and extinct animals as subject matter for her work in order to draw attention to the vulnerability of currently endangered species and to motivate viewers to contemplate the importance of conservation.
