Ray was born and raised in central Illinois, and was drawing as soon as they could hold a pencil. They knew from a young age that they wanted to tell stories, and after years of growing up on manga and webcomics, they pursued an art education at Southern Illinois University of Edwardsville. After graduation, they launched their ongoing webcomic, Dollhouse, in January 2013 and have been publishing two pages a week until Summer 2017. In fall of 2017, they quit their day job to be a full-time freelance comic artist working on Messenger with Paul Tobin, published by Webtoon. Aside from Messenger, Ray creates short one-off comics, linoprints, letterpress, and risograph prints, zines, metalwork, and other knick-knacks.
Ray currently lives in St. Louis with their cat, Nico. They work all day and night as a comic artist, colorist, and letterer.
They love the city, and in their free time they love making music playlists, collecting skulls, and playing video games (currently playing: Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain).
Ray is currently looking for coloring work, and they'd love to draw your next variant cover. If it's got blood, crime, or knives, then they're even more likely to love the project. They're also available as a guest speaker and educator.
