Grace Spezzano was born in Brooklyn, New York and currently resides in the Pennsylvania Pocono Mountains. Self taught at an early age, Grace was inspired during her teen years by the artwork of Virgil Finlay. She soon developed her own style using oil and acrylic paint. In the 1990's she discovered pyrographic art and began burning stories onto driftwood hence the name "Tree Tales Creations".
Having three rescue dogs of her own gave her the inspiration to create paintings of rescue animals in order to raise awareness of their need for homes.
