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. Her freelance work shows a deep connection with her surroundings and the food systems of the area in which she lives and works. For three years she was the exhibit designer and curator at the University of Michigan's Stephen S. Clark Library. She currently works as a sign maker for Whole Foods, and as an independent artist and maker. For the past eight years she has been piecing together a BFA at the Stamps School of Art and Design. She is also a writer, and was the recipient of a 2015 Hopwood Nonfiction Writing Award.
