About the artist


Biography

Gracia Dayton lives in Lexington, MA with her husband Bruce and dog Flicka. She holds a B.S. in Art Education from Skidmore College, and has since received degrees from a number of schools, including the DeCordova Museum School, California School of Fine Arts, Boston University, San Francisco State University, and Bennington College.



“Gracia Dayton is the chromatic champion with…monotypes rich in saturated reds and blazing yellows as well as blues and greens….Ms Dayton has something in common with the English painter Howard Hodgkin.”

— Vivian Raynor, The New York Times
