About the Art:
Born in Alaska and raised in Maine, Rebecca Mir Grady's creative sensibility is steeped in saltwater and mountains. When she was too little to walk she was pulled around on a sled by a german shepherd called Namer. Her art work and writing is focused on the perplexing character of interactions with the natural world, and the subsequent ramifications. Grady holds an MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Born in Alaska and raised in Kennebunk, Maine, Rebecca Grady apprenticed with local jewelry designers before moving to Chicago to study sculpture at the School of the Art Institute. She earned a BFA in Sculpture and Ceramics from SAIC and an MFA in Visual Arts from the University of Illinois at Chicago. After 7 years working as a metalsmith for a handmade jewelry company, Rebecca merged her creative interests and skills into the launch of an eponymous jewelry line. Rebecca currently lives in Chicago with her wife, and travels to Maine every chance she gets.
