Ray was born in 1958 in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. I have had a passion for drawing and painting for as long as I can remember. After completion of my education at the local comprehensive school I followed this passion into working in a Photographic/Darkroom studio, I have also worked as a Graphic Artist in a number of studios in the Newcastle Upon Tyne area.
He is an Artist who works mainly in watercolours but on occasion in other mediums. One of his main inspirations (although not solely) comes from a deep love of everything nautical, especially from the beautiful Northumberland coastline of England.
Ray’s paintings are very much sought after and are collected world wide.
