Ray Goodey, Borne Weymouth, Dorset 1947. Ray Picked up pencils, crayons and paint aged around 3 and never looked back. Well not quite, but having spent an enlightening time at Plymouth Art College in the mid 60’s, including exhibiting at the Penwith, St. Ives alongside Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth. Ray moved on to create, graphics and exhibitions for Plymouth city council for 10 years. From 1970 to the 1990’s he created and built a business selling antiquarian prints countrywide and set up a framing business to compliment this. Moving back to Weymouth in 1992 and meeting local artist Yvonne Edwards and later marrying; he set up shop in various locations around the harbour and was surprised to find he could still paint! He has sold hundreds of works in various media over the years but still enjoys Photography the most. Which was his favourite subject at Art College. Now living in Bridport and running Red Plumb Gallery he doesn’t paint as much as he would like but does find time to create Photographs. With an artist’s eye, he produces some interesting and imaginative images taken on his travels. His many old 35mm cameras have now given way to digital but Ray dislike too much tweaking of an image. Ray often takes over 100 photographs in one location and ends up with only one he likes. We hope you do as well.
