Rachel Gray is a Canadian interdisciplinary artist based in Algonquin Territory/Ottawa. Navigating the world with Dyslexia has led her to explore art as a way to create customized language. Through drawing, performance, installation, and storytelling she tries to speak into the places language leaves blank. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. Rachel is also an author, animator, and illustrator, with her graphic novel "Jess" adapted into a musical work commissioned by Pacific Opera Victoria. She is the librettist and co-creator of Raccoon Opera, premiering at Salle Bourgie in Montreal in spring of 2024.

Rachel is also the producer of SPEAK Podcast which shares the voices and stories of artists with developmental disabilities through audio art, music and a model of production that centres co-leadership and accessibility. Rachel is a founding member of Ghost Rooster, a disability arts collective at the intersection of dance, visual art and audio storytelling.
