Originally from Wilmington Delaware, Grace Guillebeau joined the Arts of Life community as a volunteer in January 2016. She had the opportunity to work with two different artists as a direct support professional before being hired full-time in May 2016. Grace graduated from the University of Delaware in 2014 with a Bachelors degree in Elementary Education and a concentration in Middle School Social Studies. While completing her undergraduate degree, Grace participated in a Residency Program and Group Exhibition at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2013. Her art practice consists of portrait drawing and painting with heavy experimentation. Since 2009, she has had a small business creating custom painted canvas shoes. Selling over 50 pairs, each shoe is a collaboration with her customer using their ideas to create original wearable art. Grace loves the inspiration; the sense of community and creative involvement the Arts of Life brings to her life!
