My name is Ray! I am an artist based in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada. I am inspired and entertained by the natural world and love to play with words.

I don’t want to only post images of my art. I want to share a little bit of me too. Not like nudes but, like, on a deeper level to get to know me.

Stickers & Magnets available! $3 each and we can support our beloved postal service 😉
