Abstract and narrative artist Jean Gray Mohs hails from North Carolina, where she was born and raised. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Georgia Southern University in December 2002 and later completed her Master of Arts in Teaching at the same institution in 2008. Returning to North Carolina, she has been an active artist in Raleigh since then.

In her artwork, Jean Gray Mohs intricately weaves her personal journey of chronic illness and disability, primarily focusing on painting and sculpture. Post-2019, following her experience with a double lung transplant, she began incorporating maple plywood and delicate waxed thread into her creations, symbolizing the unity of two separate bodies now harmoniously intertwined. Through the use of contrasting materials, Mohs delves into the realms of vulnerability and resilience, providing an intimate perspective for those familiar with chronic illnesses. Her art stands as powerful totems, embodying the potential for strength and possibility in the face of adversity.

Mohs' work has been showcased in various exhibits, including those at the Contemporary Art Museum in Raleigh, the North Carolina Museum of Art, Greenhill Gallery, Meredith College, Duke University Hospital, and an upcoming show at UNCG's Greensboro Project Space in the fall of 2023. Her art has gained recognition in publications such as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Southern Living, and Traditional Home, with exhibitions both regionally and internationally.
