Artist’s Statement:

A blank sheet of paper holds many possibilities.

Hello, my name is Forrest Grey. I’m a self-taught artist from Iowa. Growing up without things, you learn to create. Art is a way to soothe, introspect, and connect with others. I gravitate towards nature themes such as landscapes, mountains, and stormy seas.

Other times you may see me trying to capture the chaos in surrealism. I aim to confront fears, trauma, and nightmares. In life, we must remind ourselves that we learn from both the good and difficult times. It’s our choices that shape us.
My primary materials are oil pastels, watercolors, and pencils. I do love to experiment and try new methods and materials, so you never know what may pop up! It is my dream to continue to create and give back locally and to the organizations close to my heart.
