Paul Ray

Paul Ray graduated from Rockland High School in 2000. Since childhood he had limited verbal communication abilities, but has always been a strong visual communicator. His paintings exhibit his interpretive vision of a scene with magnificent shades of colors rather than a strictly realistic portrayal. Paul’s oil paintings range from local plein air scenes to still life works that tap the muses of Matisse and Cezanne.

Presently Paul is known for his expressive oil paintings of  seascapes such as Nantasket Beach and Paragon Park. For several years he has enjoyed and focused on plein air paintings. After high school he enrolled in Massasoit Community College and studied graphic design/fine arts for 4 years. Paul has studied privately with well known local artists Becky Haletky, John Kilroy and Michael Domina. Beginning in 2013 he took drawing and acrylic painting classs at the Museum of Fine Arts -School of Visual Arts to continue improving his drawing and painting skills.

He is an active member of Hull Artists and Scottsdale Artists League.  His paintings have been exhibited at local libraries, galleries and several well-known south shore art festivals, including Hull Artists Open Studios.

His painting “Restless Nantasket” was featured in July 2011 issue of South Shore Living Magazine.  In 2013 an article was published in the Patriot Ledger’s local news corner.  Paul was featured as a creative fine artist in an article published by the Hull Times in September 2015 during Hull Artist’s 20th year Gala Celebration. 

Paul has won many awards at local juried shows (Marina Bay, North River Art Society, Massasoit Community College Art Festival) including the Braintree Art Association’s Best in Show.  In 2019 Paul relocated to Arizona with his parents and joined immediately  Scottsdale Artists League and participated local art shows and meetings.
