Makuyo Ono Gray

Makuyo Ono Gray in her studio.

Born in Japan, Mayuko Ono Gray, 37, arrived in the United States alone at the age of 18. Her ambitions were: “Have fun, learn English and go to college.”

After a quick immersion class in American culture for incoming young immigrants in Los Angeles,  she headed to Houston where she studied English at St Thomas University. She found a husband and added a baby girl to her life.
