Hey there!
I'm Catina jane Gray .. i am a self taught mixed media artist,jewelry designer, & photographer living in sunny florida ..  I am a Jesus freak,color junk,and in love with sending hope to the hopeless..
                i am married to my best friend/hubby of 13 years and my children are comprised of the following: 2 stubborn crazy wiener dogs, a lab rescue who is a faithful friend, and a orange kitty who loves to snuggle!
                   I'm inspired by children's books, mary blair, & mid century illustrations .. I want to illustrate a children's book some day!

        My creative journey started as a kid . Bright colors and creation always excited me!  Creating something new was equal to opening a christmas gift ..
            In my teens I discovered painting and working with charcoals along with writing poetry and there began my love for mixing words and visual art.
               I really feel art has the power to heal us , to help us find parts of ourselves we've been seeking out , & to speak right to the heart of the matters we are most considered with.

   God has recently opened to a new path for me where I felt called to pursue my art full-time ! So exciting and scary in one breath! So finding time to create is now not as much of a struggle but with that comes keeping the faith that you are on the right path, that what your doing is worth the hard work & love your putting into it.
It is so easy as a artist of any kind to devalue what you are doing and it's importance. to think that Art isn't a "REAL" job & it is only making money that defines our success .. NOT TRUE!!
 Don't Doubt that you are making an amazing impact on the world around you!! No one can deliver your message just the way YOU can!! 
(I'm preaching to myself too !)

           For me my art is a outlet for working out my struggles in life. I tend to paint myself reminders to never give up, always hope! , & to keep shining love.. I have had a long struggle with an anxiety disorder and it can be a very discouraging battle but I find the more I paint messages of hope for the world to see the more I find myself hoping ,trusting, & believing !!!

I believe hope is contagious & love is fearless… and we are more amazing then we may ever know!!  God bless you all!!!
