Grace Arledge is an interpretive realist who works with recognizable subjects and a wide variety of media. She approaches each piece with a fresh eye, unafraid to use new techniques if that is what fits the subject best. Arledge employs a method of expressionism that stays true to her subject while still leaving room for artistic interpretation. "I use my art so that the subject is 'in your face,'

"I need to inspire with my art. I work with form, structure, shape, contrast, B/W &; vibrant color to make a strong statement. I use representational art in such a way the subject is “in your face.” I want people to be more spiritual, to get in touch with original thinking, to be inspired to examine themselves introspectively, to build up their souls and aspirations." -Grace Arledge
