Eunshin Grace Kim was born in Seoul, South Korea. She has a masters in Art Education from The University of British Columbia. Grace has always been drawn to the divine images of late 13th to late 15th century European Renaissance artists: Giotto, Fra Angelico and Piero Della Francesca, attracted to a certain awkwardness. Grace's figures are static, and often exist in solemn contemplation. The images are strange, never tranquil or pretty, with characters in an imagined time and place; clothed and equipped with possessions suggesting the kind of activities and predicaments they inhabit. Grace currently makes art in Toronto, Canada.
