Mixed media on paper
Lauren Gray is an artist based in Queens, NY who primarily works in the medium of painting. She also spends a lot of time using sketchbooks for recording experiences or using mixed media techniques. She enjoys finding beauty in the mundane or bizarre as a source of inspiration for her work.
Lauren has a BA in Interdisciplinary Arts from the University of Texas at Dallas. She co-founded the original And/Or Gallery (formerly in Dallas, now in Pasadena CA) and was the founder and curator of the Safe Room Gallery in Dallas from 2012-2015. She was an artist in residence at the CentralTrak residency in Dallas in 2015.
Currently a stay at home parent/homeschooler to her three year old daughter, she relishes the time she gets to slip away to a happy place in her studio while her daughter naps.
