Location: Vancouver, BC
After completing studies in ceramics and an Industrial Design degree from Emily Carr in 2001, Grace began to work as a visual stylist for boutiques, hotels, and exhibitions across Canada. Soon thereafter, she became an art director for a local home decor distributor. While traveling around the world for inspiration, she created lifestyle imagery and designed tableware and housewares for national and international retailers. After a long stint in the corporate realm, one particular and life-changing trip to Paris inspired Grace to return to her love of working with her hands. In particular, clay was calling her and she has designed and made many collections and forms ever since.
Since 2007, Grace has built her body of work and experience in craft shows and sales across Canada and the US. the shows that she frequents are the One of a Kind Show in Toronto, Circle Craft in Vancouver and Renegade SF and studio sales in her studio in East Vancouver, BC.
In 2018, she finally made a big move into the studio of her dreams. She formed OH Studio ( short for Object Handmade ) and began teaching workshops and hosting food-based events. Later in the year, she partnered up with Strange Fellows Brewery to launch a hugely successful Christmas market called, Krampusmarkt.
Grace continues to work full time from her studio and raise her now 6-year-old daughter, Olive.
