Artist Focus: Ray Lucci

A focus on the artwork of Ray Lucci

Ray Lucci is a self-taught artist raised in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Working most of his adult life in the construction trade, he started painting after being diagnosed with cancer. “I needed something to occupy my mind during the two years of surgery and chemo treatments,” he says. As a young child he was always drawn toward bright, vivid colors and fascinated by the local wildlife, which influenced him to begin painting.What Surfs Beneath, acrylic on wood panel, 18 x 24"

“The Gift” Child of Innocence, acrylic on canvas panel, 24 x 18"As a new artist, acrylics were the perfect match. “I was always doing something outdoors, fishing, hiking and mountain biking, which reflects in my paintings,” says Lucci. “I am now five years cancer free and living my new dream of being a full-time artist.” Together with his unique style and imagination of wildly colored wildlife and vivid surf and beach art, each painting seems to come to life with the movement of each colorful brushstroke. —
