Born in Savannah, Georgia, in 1883, Gracie was the only child of W.J. and Frances Watson. Her father was the manager of the opulent Pulaski Hotel located at the corner of Bull and Bryant Streets in Savannah. The hotel was Gracie’s playground, and she became a darling of hotel guests and staff, often entertaining them in the lobby with songs and dances.
On April 22, 1889, just two days before Easter, Gracie passed away at the age of 6 after suffering a brief episode of pneumonia. She was interred in the Watson family plot in Bonaventure Cemetery. Her grave was initially marked by a traditional headstone. However, in 1890, her grief-stricken father commissioned sculptor, John Walz to produce a monument bearing Gracie’s likeness.
Some people who do this call themselves artists. Some use the word photographer. Both labels feel oddly foreign to me though and I don't know if I will ever grow into either. I'm just a fan of life, of people, and of his beautiful world. I enjoy viewing all of the above through my camera lens. Unlike many others who also offer their work for sale, I do this for one reason... simple pleasure. Having the vision of what 'can be' then seeing it through to being a physical image is very rewarding. Yes, it is such a blessing when my work is viewed. If a print or product sells, I am literally in shock and so very grateful. But, if I knew that human eyes would never again see another one of my works, I would be devastated but I wouldn't slow...
