Born in 1973, Grace Lila grew up on the family mango farm in a tiny place called Mutchilba in Far North Queensland. Grace Lila is an Accredited Counsellor and now Fulltime Artist.
A series of traumatic events led her to painting as a way of self-expression and release. This has led her along an artistic path of self-discovery. Utilizing mixed media, mainly acrylic and oil pastels, her artwork is an intuitive form of her raw emotions and personal experiences often portrayed as hauntingly raw images.
Grace hopes to touch people through the form of painting as a way of putting words and feelings onto canvas that there are often no words for.
This has been a vehicle for her ongoing healing and personal growth in unexpecting ways.
