Misty Granade

Misty is ever-so-slightly obsessed with paint, glue, and paper. Her interests range across a variety of arts and crafts such as contemporary visual art, mixed media, bookbinding, crochet, and yarn spinning. When she isn’t in her studio slinging paint or glueing things together, she loves to read, cook, and spend time with family and friends.
