Ray Hunter
Born and raised in Montana, Ray Hunter attended Eastern Montana College, majoring in Art Education. He received his initial training with Ben Steele and studied with artist, Len Sundell. After moving to the Pacific Northwest, he studied with Jerry Stitt and Deanne Lemley and took workshops from Charles Reid and Zoltan Szabo.

After working 16 years for the same company, he seized the opportunity to become a full-time artist when the company closed. He moved to Santa Barbara and quickly acclimated to the beautiful colors and scenery of the Central Coast.

He works with a variety of subject matter including landscapes, flowers and marine subjects. Boats are a particular favorite with him because of the bright colors and textures of water and sky. His “reflections” technique is extremely effective in creating a true illusion of realism and color. His color palette is bright and striking to the eye. He has been in numerous juried art shows winning several awards. In 1992, he was named the principle artist for the Edmonds Art Festival in Washington. He has also shown at the Northwest Watercolor Society show, the annual Frye Art Museum Exhibition and now at Visions Gallery.
