About Maine artist and illustratorAbigail Gray Swartz

Abigail Gray Swartz is the artist behind GrayDayStudio

Her grandmother's maiden name and Abigail's love for rainy gray days are the inspiration behind the name of her studio.

Abigail (she/her) is an illustrator and a fine artist. Her work features themes of social justice and moments of "daily magic"- celebrating time spent in nature, her love of gardening and the salty Maine sea air.

Abigail's work highlights inspiring role models of our time with hand painted portraits and hand lettered quotes. Abigail is most known for her depiction of a modern Rosie the Riveter that was chosen for the cover of The New Yorker's "Women's March" issue. Her cover went on to win several awards. Her illustrations have appeared in publications in the US and abroad, including The New Yorker, The NY Times, Taproot Magazine, and many more.
