Along with Grace’s involvement with indigenous communities she is also a practicing artist. She uses fashion and adornment to represent her own diverse cultural heritage. She has become known for her wearable interpretations of traditional Torres Strait Island weaving techniques that take the form of body sculptures and accessories. By bringing such techniques into the contexts of both art and fashion Grace has engaged a wide audience allowing her to develop a successful business based on woven accessories, celebrating and exploring her lineage. Grace’s creations have exhibited at The National Gallery of Victoria, the Jam Factory, Adelaide and Cairns Regional Gallery. Her work has been acquired by the South Australian Museum, National Gallery of Victoria, Cairns Regional Gallery, Australian Institute of Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander Studies and Kluge Ruhe Collection at the University of Virginia, and with current interest from National Gallery Australia.
Grace was recently offered a position to complete a Doctorate in Creative Industries focusing on fashion and culture at Queensland University Technology and invited to present her first TEDx talk at James Cook University in 2017.
