Colleen Gray, located in Ontario, works with ground mineral watercolour paint on synthetic paper. She is of Mi'qmak/Acadian and Irish descent thus loves the irony or working with water and minerals on an oil based paper. "Oil and water never mix...unless of course, you're an artist".
Colleen's art is rooted in Indigenous spirituality. She tries to use her art to increase understanding of the indigenous thought process, understanding the deep connection to the land.
