Dwain Ray grew up in Southern California and was introduced to painting at an early age by his artist mother. He went on to an international business career that involved years of interesting foreign travel on a global basis, eventually focusing largely on China and the Far East. He and his family lived in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Brussels, Oregon, Tennessee, Pennsylvania and Connecticut. Since 1999 he has lived and painted in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. He studied art at the College of Charleston for several years and received additional training from a number of noted Lowcountry painters.

Dwain’s uninhibited love of color and the richness of oil painting media is consistently evident in his art. His paintings generally focus on Coastal South Carolina subject matter but also range into a variety of subjects that catch his fancy from time to time. Although he will often partially abstract or stylize his paintings, all of his work is representational. However, he enjoys making major departures from realism with unconventional and contemporary choices of colors, techniques and compositions. The artist leans towards impressionistic painting styles, often employing divisionistic brush strokes and pointillist color fabrication techniques. He seeks experimentation, risk, fun and adventure on every canvas and rejects pressures to treat art as a commodity. His work is frequently seen in Lowcountry juried art shows and is held in private collections across the country. His slogan is: "Adventures in Color"
