About Ray Roberts

Award winning artist Ray Roberts was born in 1954 and grew up in Orange County, California with its orange groves, before the days of freeways and sprawling housing developments. In 1969, after the early death of his father and mother's ill-health, Ray was sent to Orme School, a beautiful, ranch-style boarding school in the Arizona desert. Its strong fine arts program helped him to discover his artistic talent. He then attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, where he studied under John Asaro. He has also studied under Dan McCaw, Len Chmiel, Ned Jacob, and Mark Daily, among others. Like many artists he first pursued a career as an illustrator, establishing a studio in Los Angeles and then Scottsdale, Arizona, switching to fine art in 1992. Ray and his wife Peggi now live on a 20 acre ranch in Angels Camp, an old California gold rush town, surrounded by the oak-studded hills and travel to teach and paint. Ray Roberts Has a been a leading member and participant in all the activities for fundraising at the Maynard Dixon Property and the Thunderbird Foundation.
