About the Artist
(AKA: RJ Gray Jr.)
I am a relief printmaker focusing on small format prints using a variety of materials usually with at least one woodcut in each. My work is often inspired by a photo or other image that intrigues me.
A native of Stratton, Maine, I grew up in Massachusetts and returned some time ago to my hometown. I attended Mass College of Art for a year and a half in the mid-70s majoring in sculpture. Returning to college, I graduated from Salem State in Massachusetts in 1989 with a degree in studio arts -printmaking concentration- and a minor in English literature.
My work has been included in printmaking competitions throughout the U.S., as well as Denmark and Finland. Listed in Who's Who in America 2003 and 2004 editions, I am also a member of both the Boston Printmakers' and the Los Angeles Printmakers' societies. Currently I am employed at the Original Irregular newspaper in Kingfield.
