Kelly Grace was born in Toronto in the 70′s and raised in the rural area of Stouffville, Ontario. As the granddaughter of puppeteers and a clown, Kelly channels her familial creativity into her art. Her work is a culmination of efforts to bring her childhood nostalgia to life. At Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario, she eveloped styles of acrylic painting, using both traditional and mixed media collage type processes. Kelly currently works and lives in Toronto with her husband and fellow artist, Shaun Downey.
