Graceann Warn

Although Graceann Warn's academic background is in urban design and classical archaeology, she decided to take a leap of faith in 1985 to become a full time artist. She started out as an oil painter but throughout the 1990s became best known for her assemblages. In 2000, a 16-month long commission to design sets for a major opera production led to a shift in medium and scale in her studio work. Since then, she has primarily been painting on wood panels using oils and encaustic. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is in the collections of Yale University, Museum of Art and Design, US Embassies in Nairobi and Sarajevo, Pew Charitable Trusts, and many others.
