The first time I was able to purchase a piece of original art, I decided to follow my instincts and go with what felt right, so I walked around for almost an hour in a Georgetown gallery. I paced and paced, but I kept coming back to a piece titled ‘Mother and Child’ by GRACE KISA. ‘Mother and Child’ became my very first art purchase, I was so proud, and it still hangs in my entry hall today.

Grace was born in Kenya, but has lived in the U.S. since she was a teenager, first in Virginia, just miles from Washington, DC, and now full-time in Atlanta. With dual degrees in Graphic Art and Fine Arts, Grace is a multi-media artist known for her striking use of color and canvases that are full of energy, warmth and purpose.

Of her work, Grace says , “In abstracts, I try to express the play between the lyrical and the minimal. The intent is to create images that go beyond the traditional surface to grasp the soul of things.”

Several major corporations have commissioned Grace’s work for their offices and, most notably, Grace’s art hangs in Hartsfield Atlanta Airport. If you like what you see here, please contact the Just Lookin’ Gallery in Atlanta for more information.
