Jenny Gray's Profile
I make art under the old oaks in Monroe, Oregon (just outside Eugene). I have a wonderful messy studio were I design, make prints and paint.
ABOUT MY ART
I love color, I love the way ink sits on fine paper, and how layers of paint tell a story. I play with composition and color, always refining, changing and creating as I work my way through a piece. I am influenced by many things among them: the northwest landscape, old barns, old signs, typography, moss, the desert, paper ephemera, vintage textiles, 1950's modern design and art.
Design is my first love and painting is my mistress. I will always love design, she is always there for me, clean and simple, and her typography is irresistible. But painting is freedom, raw emotion, it is messy and drippy. In some of my work you will see a convergence of painting and design, in other pieces…
