LIS GRACE

LIS GRACE

Lis Grace (b. 1984, NY, NY) is an independent artist and fashion designer focused on advocating socially marginalized issues. Promoting mental health awareness, environmental preservation, and the intersection of feminism and mental health, are some core principles in Lis's work.

Lis's artwork is composed of photographs she has taken from different places she lived or traveled-- from Australia to the Amazon to the Arctic Circle-- and mixed to create a new narrative. Her work borders between the photo surrealism and digital art genres, often whimsical and playful to the eye.

A born and raised New Yorker, Lis has degrees in Textile Development & Marketing, and Fashion Design, both from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, NY.
