Ray-Bernice Alexandra Kaiser Eames, born in Sacramento in 1912, was an American artist and designer who worked in a variety of media. Growing up, her parents taught her to value objects that induce joy which later led to inventions in furniture design and toys. Her parents also instilled the value of the enjoyment of nature.
After graduating from the May Friend Bennett Women's College in Millbrook in 1933, Kaiser moved to New York City and studied abstract expressionist painting with Hans Hofmann. She was one of the founding members and key figures for American Abstract Artists (AAA) at a time when major galleries refused to show abstract art.
In 1940 she began studying at Cranbrook Academy of Art in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. There, Kaiser learned a variety of arts, moving beyond solely painting. It was also at Cranbrook where Kaiser met her husband-to-be, Charles Eames, who was the head of the department of industrial design there. Charles Eames was married at the time, with one child, but soon divorced his first wife. Charles and Ray were married in 1941, and Ray changed her name from Kaiser to Eames. Settling in Los Angeles, California, Ray and Charles Eames began a highly successful and lauded career in design and architecture.
In creative partnership with her husband Charles Eames and the Eames Office, she was responsible for ground-breaking contributions in architecture, graphic design, textile design, film, and furniture. The Eames Office is most famous for its furniture, which is still being made today. Together, the Eameses are considered one of the most influential creative forces of the twentieth century.
