Ray Shaw was born in Afton, Wyoming in 1958 and currently resides in Colorado.
His kinship with nature began at an early age and has been a prominent part of his life. Ray first picked up a brush at the age of seven. He practiced falconry from the age of fifteen and cared for wounded birds at the age of seventeen. The Air Force Academy purchased a painting of a peregrine falcon for their library collection when Ray was only eighteen years old.
He joined the Navy and painted for admirals and captains of the seventh fleet. After being discharged from the armed forces, Ray painted in Old Town San Diego for tourists for five years. He then established the “Bullocks Fine Art Gallery of San Diego,” representing over sixty-five artists in the area. Additionally, Ray founded Feathers and Fabrics of California, featuring shirts printed with many of the birds he painted. In 1990, Ray studied painting in a master class taught by Robert Bateman. His piece, “Pheasants Forever’, had over 2000 reproductions.
