Gray Canvasworks is co-owned and operated by Anderson and Arla Gray, who first discovered their passion for canvaswork as sailmakers in Southcoast Massachusetts. The business began as a side project in 2019 under the name "Anderson Gray & Company", allowing the Grays to refine their craftsmanship and creativity by producing small canvas and leather goods for local shops and marketplaces.

As the business grew, they seized the opportunity to establish their own workshop in Anderson's beloved homeland of Midcoast Maine. The Grays now live in Thomaston with their two sweet cats, a babbling brook, and a growing population of well-fed backyard birds.
