Christy Gray uses her richly colored hand-dye fabrics to bring her drawings to life. She sketches her ideas in her favorite moleskine notebooks and translates them into much larger (and Colorful!) fabric works. Christy spends hours carefully cutting, layering, fusing and stitching the fabric pieces together.
She lives a wholesome artistic life, filled with a loving family, and cares deeply for our mother earth in ways I strive to emulate.
Christy's work makes me happy and I cherish her as my dear friend.
Her artwork is in both private and public collections.
