Daughter of the renowned artist Garry Shead, Gria Shead studied at the National Art School, Sydney, where she was awarded first prize in both disciplines of drawing and printmaking, graduating in 1995.

Shead's recent paintings deal with the stories of colonists and their lives. She acknowledges the courage and contribution of powerful women who forged the road to nationhood, producing rich works that speak to fundamentaly human concepts of love, longing, displacement and discovery. Earlier works are concerned with interior spaces, evocatively depicting the character and charm rich within houses from a historic time period.

At the core of Shead's paintings is a richness and vitality that has ensured her work is highly sought after. She has exhibited at various galleries around Australia and her work is held in major collections including the University of Sydney as well as in private collections in Australia, USA and the United Kingdom.
