Grace is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and piano educator based at Eastmint Studios in Naarm, Australia.

Her practice encompasses a variety of music projects including the presentation of solo art music and ensemble collaborations, as well as composition and sound design for theatre, dance and film. Grace’s works often reflect curiosity in the creation and recasting of memories; the process by which they emerge, unfold, layer and interact with the present and environment. 

Coalescing composed and improvised material, Grace’s live performances draw from her classical training and other historic music traditions; although she often enjoys subverting many of these conventions through an abstract, feminine lens.

Grace is represented by Stella Schiftan, Crown Ruler.
