Allan Gray
Strathcona Creative Ideas

Allan Gray was born in Nova Scotia in 1944.

I graduated from Wayne State University and College for Creative Studies in Detroit Michigan in 1969. My BFA was in advertising photography with advertising design and illustration as minors. From there I worked for a large photo studio in Toronto. They produced catalogue photos for most of North America's department store catalogues,( Eatons, Simpson Sears, Sears Roebuck, JC Penneys, Alden's etc.)

After a heavy advertising career I took a summer position with a major airline company that lasted 28 years. Now retired, my wife and I are setting up a studio gallery at our home in Campbell River.

Being a multi media artist - artisan, my functional arts & crafts are; numbered, limited edition, hand painted, pine newspaper boxes for your home. Over the last 15 years I've successfully marketed them on Vancouver Island and in other countries.
