Elise Gray is a contemporary mixed media artist living in Southern Texas. Elise focuses on expressive paintings and surreal digital collages under the name, Uglee Designs. Her work can be found at exhibits such as the Hive Gallery and 1340ART online. While she grew up in Texas, Elise attributes much of her artistic evolution to her years spent in Los Angeles, California. Working at one of the top marketing agencies in the automotive sector and meeting a wide range of artists from all disciplines was essential to her craft.
