Some may be wondering why I have signed three different names: JBray, JHall, and JMcElroy. Sometimes I even sign JMc or simply JB. This year you will start finding my signature to be simply “Jae.”
The simple explanation is a divorce, then maiden name change, then remarriage, then simplification. I try to stay authentic to who I am, and this can mean different signatures.
With all the fuss with business cards, name changes and identity clarifications, I decided to simply start signing my paintings with Jae. I am the artist behind InspireHue, which is my ever evolving body of work, and my studio.
Here are the dates you will find the signatures:
2000 – 2018 – JBray, JB
2018 – JHall
2018 – JMc, JMcElroy, Jae
