Odette Grassi was born and raised in Fairbanks, Alaska. Although her family connection there is still strong, she is happily based in Western Montana. The mountains, lakes, and natural vistas are a constant source of energy and beauty for her. Ms. Grassi travels frequently and hopes to continue to be able to explore and experience different areas around the world.

In addition to creating her own works, Ms Grassi continues to teach and work with children when she can – specialist projects in the schools, private lessons, teacher workshops, and group presentations.
