Grace Levine, 23, is a chicago born artist. Relocated to Highland Park, IL, where she currently resides. She is a third year student at The Art Institute of Chicago, majoring in drawing and painting. Grace started drawing prolifically around the age of 3, igniting passion for the arts since the moment she could hold a crayon. Grace draws inspiration from Martin Ramirez, Henry Darger, Howard Finster, and Louise Bourgeois. Her work is attempting to convey a realm of fantasy, where children and creatures collide. She draws from her ideal concept where responsibilities are forgotten, in a playful, juvenile world. Grace currently exhibits and sells her work at a local Chicago store, Vintage Underground in Wicker Park, IL.
