I started painting as a release. I continue painting because someone believed in me. I am an acrylic painter and mixed media artist. I have studied under some of the best, both locally and nationally. I have a BS in Education from the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma and a Masters in Human Relations from the University of Oklahoma. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and continuing towards becoming a Registered Art Therapist. I am an adjunct professor at the University of Oklahoma. I am a member of Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition- OVAC, Individual Artists of Oklahoma- IAO, Norman Art Association and the Art Therapy Association of Oklahoma –ATAO. I have shown my works in several shows and galleries in Oklahoma, including a traveling show with collaborative group works of 10 Oklahoma artists and Unsolved History. I use art as a therapeutic way of coping with life.
Grace Hawkins is a native of Oklahoma City. She developed an interest in painting at an early age in the studio with her Nannie, porcelain artist Audelle Owen, who sparked her curiosity in various brush strokes and paint layering. She studied art at Harding Fine Arts Academy with Oklahoma artist Connie Seabourne. Hawkins went on to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with an emphasis in painting from the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. There, she studied under Jacquelyn Knapp, Blake Nolan Morgan and Jordan Vinyard. The majority of Hawkins' work focuses on portraying a wide variety of women, highlighting their beauty and sense of empowerment. Her work was part of the Nasty Women exhibit in 2017.
