Michael Edmund Ray
Born in Ontario Canada and raised from a young age in British Columbia. Michael graduated public school in Langley and followed this with a formal education in Fine Arts at Langara College in Vancouver, British Columbia. He then designed children’s playgrounds for 5 years which was followed by a career in the private and public business sectors.
His work is predominantly carved from local stone and wood. Natural figurative forms of the Northwest capture his imagination as demonstrated by the work presented here.
Exhibitions have included the Ranger Gallery in Harrison Hot Springs, the Hope Art Gallery in Hope, B.C. and the Chilliwack Cultural Center in Chilliwack, B.C. Work displayed at the Pacific National Exhibition received a wood best in show award.
There are sculptures and other works in private collections in Canada and internationally
