As a member of the Nina Collective since 2013, multimedia artist Grace Willard expresses her love of nature through her work in the paint and fibre studios. She chooses to portray animals on the endangered species list in an ongoing series of both paintings and tapestries in an effort to preserve their wild beauty.
Grace’s work has been exhibited in several venues throughout Alberta. Most recently, her paintings were featured in Canada Interlude, a group show displayed in the Stollery Gallery and City Centre Mall.
