David Gray’s initial art education at Pacific Lutheran University (BFA) has been strengthened by continued independent and occasional formal studies in pictorial expression and oil painting. The resulting work reveals a personal and contemporary expression of beauty and order which pays homage to the Classical Tradition in its craftsmanship. In addition to his well known signature style, David is also currently exploring a more contemporary sensibility in recent works.
David’s award winning paintings have been covered by major art publications including Southwest Art, Art of the West, and American Art Collector. David also teaches several workshops per year in portraiture and still life painting throughout the United States and abroad.
