Ray Marquette

Ray Marquette acquired an interest in art at an early age. Rather than attending a traditional high school, he was accepted as a student at The Johnson School (a technical and industrial school) in Scranton, Pennsylvania. There he studied architectural drawing, furniture making, and carpentry. Throughout the years—through self-instruction, personal observation, and the mentoring by some exceptionally talented teachers—he became skilled in a spectrum of art forms. His studies have included: steel sculpture, photo restoration, enameling, paper making, PMC clay crafting, ceramics, mixedmedia, jewelry making, silk painting, bronze casting, film and digital photography, and collage. He is a furniture craftsman, writing instrument maker, guitar maker, photographer, sculptor, and graphic artist.
