Grace has always been an entrepreneur starting two small businesses upon graduating from Oregon State University in 2011, as the nation began its recovery from the Great Recession. Grace started out as an artist while jobs were few, art buyers were prioritizing living expenses, and competition was fierce amongst art professionals who were over qualified working any job they could get. Grace’s success for building her businesses was due to the services she offered. Grace has a reputable consistent and persistent performance to see projects through to their completion and she knows first hand the hard work involved. Being an entrepreneur ultimately is a self dedicated process to completing projects that contribute to the growth of a vision. Building yourself as an artist is as much opening and operating a small business as it is to create a work of art. You can trust Grace to guide your decision making, help you grow and sustain yourself as an artist, or build art and culture programming to provide opportunities that sustain artists in your community.
