theStudio Artist of the Week…


Danna Ray, Painter, South Carolina

As we head into the holidays and Arizona starts to feel more like winter, it is only fitting that Danna Ray’s paintings of mountain imagery caught our attention. Her current work is an exploration of the inherent transience and connectedness of all things. She is interested in small moments that scratch away the myopic fog of everyday routine to reveal glimpses of a bigger picture.

Danna Ray grew up in rural South Carolina, where she spent her days exploring the woods, fields, and creeks around her family’s log cabin. She later went on to attend Virginia Commonwealth University to receive a BFA in Illustration. Today, Danna spends most days working in her studio, though she and her husband often take off to the mountains to go camping, hiking, and rock climbing.
