Grace Goodson was born into an artistic family, which helps to explain why she has been passionate about art for as long as she can remember. She was introduced to pastels at an early age by her parents, who were professional artists. For her first art lesson, Graceís father provided her with a set of 8 oil pastels, a homemade easel, and set up a simple still-life of an apple, banana and a pear in their home on Long Island, New York.
Her father (Tom Goodson) was a commercial artist who once worked for Disney. Her mother (Rose Mary Goodson) is over ninety years old and still paints regularly. A sister is an associate professor of fine art. Her other siblings are talented musicians and artists in their own right.
Grace has studied and worked in the medium throughout her life. .She paints a variety of subjects in an impressionistic style, with an emphasis on the effect of light and color. Her intention is to suggest an interpretation of the landscape or subject - so those who see her paintings will sense her love of the subject and feel that they can step into the picture for a moment.
Graceís work has shown in galleries, businesses and exhibitions in Colorado. Her pastels and commissions are in private and corporate collections across the United States.
She is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of Colorado, a member of the Artists Association Northern Colorado (AANC), and a juried member of Trimble Court Artisans. Graceís work is exhibited in Trimble Courtís gallery in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Pastel is my favorite medium because of its intoxicating colors. I love working with pastels... applying pigment directly to paper or other surface fits well with the way I see things and my desire to capture and interpret color and light. Color and light are essential for conveying a mood, and my artwork is just that...an attempt to convey and share my emotional response to the subject at hand.
While landscapes, birds, and florals have been my focus for a number of years, a constant need for new challenges means I am always working to improve my technique and am looking for new and different subjects.
I have always found artistic and spiritual inspiration in the extraordinary ordinary moments in nature and everyday life. I hope that you also find the ordinary as extraordinary through my artwork...and that it enhances your own sense of appreciation for the beauty around us.
