Jami Ray came to painting through the solitary reflections of a woman beginning
life in the urban decay of southern California.
Her time alone produces figures of morphed proportions and anatomies to display
a feeling of social awkwardness, vulnerability, and fragility.
She has lived in a number of beautiful places across the country including
Yosemite National Park. Doubtless this has influenced her work.
She often paints in public in performance with local bands and other events. She
enjoys the coastal life offered here and
is a mother of two beautiful children who often participate in her creative process.
Through her lens at the world she continues to reflect on her particular refined
humanity and art making.
