About the Artist

Originally from Colorado, Jamie now works from her art studio in Kansas City MO. Academic degrees and professional practice in graphic design deeply underpin her aesthetic choices, as does her environmental association with each place she has lived – including the architecture of London England, the trees of the Pacific Northwest, the geology of the West and Southwest, and the storms of the Midwest.

About the Artist

Originally from Colorado, Jamie now works from her art studio in Kansas City MO. Academic degrees and professional practice in graphic design deeply underpin her aesthetic choices, as does her environmental association with each place she has lived – including the architecture of London England, the trees of the Pacific Northwest, the geology of the West and Southwest, and the storms of the Midwest. Her mixed media works highlight her interest in integrating traditional craft-based techniques – such as custom hand-marbled materials, encaustic beeswax, woodworking, and gold leaf gilding – in the making of contemporary artworks.

It is said that all life on earth is created from the matter of long-dead stars. Gray’s current body of work is about creating quiet moments that represent the creative forces behind the natural world. Across both two and three dimensions, Gray creates an inventive visual language inspired by modernism, geology, and astronomy and the visual parallels found therein. Abstracted and geometric motifs frame dense marbled textures that are evocative of patterns found in both terrestrial and astrological phenomena and gold leaf details reference the star stuff that permeates everything.
