About Faith Gruver

Faith Gruver is best known for a style that brings classical art into the modern era, with a passion for creating images that celebrate diversity. With settings inspired by Impressionism, accented by figures reminiscent of the Renaissance, she specializes in acrylic painting with experiments in gouache and digital mediums. Raised in Rochester surrounded by a history of strong female role models, Faith seeks to empower women of all cultures through her work. Upon completion of a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Illustration at the Rochester Institute of Technology in 2018, Faith continues to expand the realm of representation in the artistic world.
