Trained in a variety of fine arts media Jeni Gray-Roberts is an emerging artist working predominantly in kiln-formed glass.
Her glasswork evokes the movement of light, air and water. She is inspired by all things in nature but is especially fascinated by moving water. Her work is a reflection of the ebb and flow of the rivers and oceans she has experienced throughout her travels.
Jeni studied journalism at Moravian College and fine arts at Sam Houston State University. Her initial artistic career included radio, fashion and photography. Following that, Jeni spent 8 years at various New York City advertising agencies and a Manhattan art and events gallery. Through the Art Students League of New York City, she practiced silversmithing and then found fused glass. That is when she finally discovered her artistic purpose. Later she went on to study glass fusing and kiln work. She is a member of the Glass Art Society and her pieces can be found in private collections throughout the US.
Jeni moved from New York City in 2006 and lives and works in Deep River.
