Jean Gray is an artist from North Carolina. She has been drawn to art her entire life. When age four, she asked her art teachers if she could draw everyone in her class. While the others napped, she did so not missing a student or a teacher. And when waiting in line at ice cream stores, Jean Gray used to grab a pencil out of her moms purse and start sketching on napkins.
When her mom would stare at lots of white paint chips thinking they were all the same, Jean Gray could easily discern the different hues immediately. Before the age of five, she profoundly declared to her mom . . . But, Mom, I am art!
She received a BFA from Georgia Southern University in December of 2002. Upon earning her Master of Arts in teaching in 2008 she has recently settled back into North Carolina where she is an active artist.
