Grace Nestor-Louie Artist Bio

I am a self-taught oil painter that has been painting my whole life. I used to hide under the tables in preschool to draw instead of participating in nap time. At 16, I discovered oil paints in a high school art class and was immediately hooked. I have been using oil paints since. I liked how bold the colors could be and enjoyed the idea of using the same materials as the old masters.

2020 was the start of my art adventure. In 2019 I was at a desk job and wanted desperately to pursue my art. Till that point my art was always on the back burner due to school, work or life demands. My loving husband saw my longing and encouraged me to start pursuing my dream. He wanted me to be happy even though quitting a stable job for a very unstable art pursuit was risky. He believed in me.

I am now blessed to spend my days in my home studio painting with my cat. I sell my paintings off of my personal website, and stream myself painting live on Twitch.
