Artist Bio: Grace Horner has been drawing for most of her life and started honing her skills at the age of sixteen. She is mostly self-taught and spent her early 20's creating a collection of illustrations for friends, events, and special occasions. Her primary focus is to continue creating art for galleries, storytelling, and personal satisfaction. Grace draws her inspiration from animation, fashion, history, and nature.

Artist Statement: This series represents the bubbly and vivacious energy that comes with imagination during uncertainty. My art offers an inside perspective into the private spheres of recollection, new ideas, and self-expression. Most of these pieces were created during the stay-at-home order, due to COVID-19, in order to cope with my own feelings of loneliness and isolation. I have always used art as a form of expression when words fail me, and my imagination continues to run freely through these pieces. They represent the enthusiasm that comes from the desire to create something beautiful that's beyond the seeing eye and to immerse yourself into a world of effervescent beings.
