Ray is a printmaker and author/illustrator based in Culgaith, in the Eden Valley.

Drawing with a graphics tablet and digital paint software, he is able to mix visual media conventions, in the layered construction of his prints. Underlying abstract qualities also lie behind the seemingly figurative imagery of his work, which often features stylised bird and animal motifs. The prints could be described as a form of graphic theatre, inhabited centre stage, by characters drawn from the natural world. References to Ray’s interest in indigenous people’s art forms are usually evident, as too, in one form or another, is a fascination with the relationship between illusion and reality in the drawn image.

Ray is exhibiting for this years Open Studios Trail, with the ‘Artists Ensemble’, upstairs at Mrs Miller’s Tea Room, Hazeldene Garden Centre, Culgaith, Penrith, CA10 1QF
