MARKUS RAY is a painter of sacred faces and images. His educational background in the Arts includes the Cleveland Institute of Art (BFA) and Tyler School of Art (MFA). His 40 years of painting have given him a visual style of his own. His mentors, OP ART painter Julian Stanczak, and ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONIST Stephen Greene were strong influences in his development of color and insistence on sacred content.

MARKUS lives in Washington, DC, USA and travels all over the world with his wife and author, SONDRA RAY, presenting seminars on relationships and spiritual matters.
