NOVEMBER ARTIST: Grace Bogner MEDIUM: oil/acrylic on canvas 

Grace Bogner grew up in the desert of Joshua Tree and eventually moved to the prairie of Lincoln, Nebraska. As she grew she discovered a love for art and the ability to convey her inner dialogue onto canvas. She developed a connection to the idea that we were created out of dust and breath. Her work portrays the labor we do with our hands, the time we spend getting lost in it, and the growth that comes as a result.
