Candy Graves is a Texan artist who has always loved transforming objects and space to make them more beautiful. This love is what led her to earn a degree in Drawing and Painting from Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Her works have been shown in New Haven, CT and Minneapolis, MN. Graves has worked alongside Houston muralist George Bevill and Minneapolis-based muralist Melodee Strong. She creates artwork in a variety of media, but her favorite is acrylic paint. Paint lends itself well to the sense of movement and bold color that she incorporates into her work. Graves specializes in creating portraits that showcase the individuality and spirit of each person or figure she paints. She is also co-founder of Dapper Team Bravo.
