A Los Angeles native Ray has chased creativity his whole life. Painting and drawing was always a favorite activity. Coming from a family of home and boat builders he decided to pursue a career in architectural illustration that, shortly, evolved into design. He was able to combine the two and found himself designing buildings in Asia and the Middle East as well as domestically.
Ray discovered his passion for the pallet knife and acrylics while studying art in college. He likes the vibrant colors of the acrylics and the effects achievable with the knife. Merging the two, along with his love of architecture, Ray enjoys creating impressionistic interpretations of Iconic structures.
His focus on architectural landscapes has lead him to his most recent works concentrating on the land marks at Avalon Bay on Catalina Island off the coast of Southern California.
