Grace Slick began painting in 1989 after her last performance with Jefferson Airplane as part of a reunion tour. Much of her artwork seems to make reference to her time as a singer and songwriter. As with her song “White Rabbit”, Alice in Wonderland references are dominant in her artwork. Images of Alice and the White Rabbit appear often in her paintings. Her paintings also include other musical and rock icons such as Janis Joplin, Jerry Garcia, Pete Townshend, Jim Morrison, and Sting. In the late 1950s Grace Slick briefly studied art at the University of Miami.
