Born in Elmhurst, New York, Marion Gray Traver studied art with her father, George Traver. Until his death, she shared a studio with him for many years in New York City. Her favorite subject and the one that brought her much acclaim was New England winter scenes. She was active from 1918 to 1946 in the National Association of Women Artists, founded in New York City in 1889.
