Grace Rother is an artist from Ann Arbor, Michigan, currently working out of Chicago. Grace was given artistic instruction starting at a young age from her Opa, an architect and watercolor painter. She came of age in a tight-knit community of artists who shared skills and materials. Her personal work focuses around themes of sexuality, personal interactions, and the human body, often collaging imagery from a variety of personal and cultural sources. She works in a range of mediums, but returns most often to pen and ink. She is also a writer, and was the recipient of a 2015 Hopwood Nonfiction Writing Award.
