Grace was born in Hong Kong and spent her formative years in England. She received her Art education partly in London and Toronto. For some thirty years after graduating from Ontario College of Art in Graphic Design and earning a Bachelor of Arts from University of Guelph, Grace did not engage in any artistic activities but devoted her time to the care of home and family.

Since 2000, she has inched her way back into art-making with her main focus in figurative art and her most preferred medium, today, is charcoal.

'Charcoal feels like the extensions of my fingers!'
