connecting the dots to lines...

Hi, my name is Grace. I connect the dots to lines in life through art. Connecting the dots to lines the sole behind my pattern. Random yet planned. Simple. Nice. Clean. My contemporary style is purely self-taught, exploratory, and created with subconscious intent.

dots2lines is a visual representation of connecting the dots to lines as we find our way in life. Each dot starts to form a line or it stands alone. Each line started can take you in an unpredictable direction forward, backward, up, down, or in the chaotic zigzag. dots2lines art is like the erratic path life takes us down, never knowing where we'll end up but left with a painting of the lines we left behind.

Aside from dots2lines, I enjoy oil painting, pastel painting, drawing, baking, cooking, eating, reading, writing, singing, hiking, camping, traveling, celebrating. Being a full time mom to my son is the biggest blessing I could ask for. My husband is the most amazing photographer ever and my best friend. I'm the second oldest of nine kids, who grew up in a military family, and we lived all over the USA, including Hawaii. Because of that, I was home schooled through preschool to high school. Virginia is where I consider home and has been the longest place I've ever lived. I love the achromatic gray.

Thank you for reading my about page, and I hope you enjoy connecting the dots to lines of your life no matter where it takes you.
