I LOVE faces, shiny eyes, lip curves, nose angles, cheekbones slants, eyebrow lines, but I grew up in the middle of a walnut grove in the Central Valley of California, miles from any female playmates my age. No faces—aside from family—to see.
Works on Commission
Californian artist, Quincey Grace grew up on her family’s walnut grove. Unlike anyone else around her, she felt and saw mystical electrical energy emanate from the trees. It was an overwhelming and deeply moving experience for her.After moving to Claremont, California, she started seeing images moving past her on a conveyor belt, projected on the insides of her eyelids. The left end of this conveyor belt originated in Deep Space. On it were thousands of works of art she had never seen before. She wanted to create those images and colors. She didn’t have training in art, so she began painting and decoupaging wildly colored furniture, wooden painter’s boxes, and large, empty picture frames, and vibrantly colored pastels drawings.
Then, she put her hands into clay, making ceramic forming faces, figures and sculptures. Firing designs in kilns, studying images for ideas, watching the phantom images inside her eyelids, peering at other artists’ work, photographing shadows on the sides of buildings, studying faces, and combining clay, fabric, beads, flowers, etc. She sees, feels, learns, invents, combines, and makes. She created these pieces during the lock-down pandemic and realized that she didn’t need to make art the “correct” way because she made it her way.

In my creative process, I join all the things I love into works of art that look back at me, and voila, I have new friends! I thought you might like to watch the creation of new friends, as they go through the various steps toward their completion.
