Quote from Robert Freeman, who then was curator of the Art Gallery of Mississauga, Mississauga, Ontario.

  "Working in oil, pastel,watercolour and charcoal, she has developed a reputation for her strong gestural figures and powerful compositions, often depicting the human psyche in all it's states. Grindley, as her work attest, has a masterful understanding of the human anatomy and is able to convey emotional attitudes through her sensitivity of line."

My goal is to depict human emotion and movement in a spontaneous and expressive way.
