Ansley Coleman Grier, a Columbia, S.C. native and resident of Forest Acres, is a 1995 graduate of Clemson University, earning a B.A. degree in Early Childhood Education. She is married with three children. Ansley is a local artist and has been proudly commissioning her art to our community since 2003. Ansley began her career in teaching young children, who were stimulated and inspired by her in her artistic classroom surroundings. Ansley recognized the value of integrating art into everyday learning and noticed the children’s ability to express themselves in colorful and intriguing environments. Through her career as an educator, Ansley’s natural creativity meshed with her respect for art as it ties directly to children’s learning. After 12 years of teaching, Ansley decided to concentrate on painting whimsical art and quickly became commissioned and known locally as a talented artist. Now, her art hangs in homes throughout the United States and abroad.
Each Art By Ansley art piece is original, heavily textured and raised, hand painted, and gloss coated on a gallery wrapped, back stapled cotton canvas. Ansley’s art pieces are uniquely eclectic, and not one is alike in style or design. Adding Ansley Grier’s original art to your home will enhance your living space with vibrant colors and whimsical images.
