Artist bio: Ray
Garrett retired to St. Simons Island, Georgia, where he has pursued his desire
to experiment with fine art. He began sculpting--using plywood as the primary
medium because of its texture and unique lines. He eventually moved
onto clay, portrait heads, animals and birds. Next was metal after a short
course in welding and then onto paper mache. Easily bored and curious to
experiment Ray move onto painting and is now working to combine sculpture into
paintings, thus weaving a great deal of engineering into his art.
