Linda Gray has made a career in New Hampshire’s arts and nonprofit fields since graduating from Plymouth State College in 1978 with a BS in Art Education. She has been an active member of the Mount Washington Valley community for the past 42 years, where her personal and professional lives continue to evolve and intertwine.
For a decade after college, Linda was a freelance fiber artist whose large applique wall hangings sold in galleries and juried shows and were commissioned by collectors throughout New England. For the past 32 years, Linda has worked professionally in three North Country nonprofit organizations while creating art in her free time.
In 2006, Linda began painting in oils, inspired by the landscapes she loves. She is largely self taught and paints outdoors in locations off the coast of Maine and in the White Mountains as well as in the studio from her own photos, imagination, and memory.
Her work has been exhibited in a number of group and solo shows as well as being included in several private collections. Her paintings can be found in Portsmouth, NH at Valerie's Gallery, sometimes at WREN’s Local Works Gallery in Bethlehem and at Hurricane Mountain Design Gallery in North Conway, and occasionally at the Jackson Art Studio & Gallery.
Linda works full-time as a senior philanthropy advisor at New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, building charitable assets to benefit nonprofit organizations and scholarships in NH’s Lakes and North Country Region. She lives in Intervale, NH with her husband and dog. She paints as often as possible.
