Grace Mehan DeVito

Grace has a deep appreciation and respect for the insight, power and humanity of the representational realist’s approach to painting. She is particularly aware of composition, the disposition of light and color, and the handling of space. On a deeper level, Grace strives to capture the essential dignity, emotional truth, and beauty of her subject matter providing insight into their unique qualities to engender a relationship between the viewer and the subject. She is a valued CSOPA faculty member.
