Ray Roberts, Traditional Painter.
Like many successful artists before him, Ray first pursued a career as an illustrator, establishing a studio in Los Angeles and then Scottsdale, Arizona. He got up the courage to switch to fine art in 1992 and has never looked back. Ray currently teaches figure and landscape workshops across the country and abroad.
Ray and his wife, Peggi, live on a 20-acre ranch in Angels Camp, an old California gold rush town, surrounded by the oak-studded hills.
