Raymond Ore is a contemporary realist painter with Autism who lives and works in South London, UK. Having grown up in a large city, his time spent in the many parks and open spaces is especially precious as are frequent trips out into the surrounding countryside. Throughout his life, Ray has always been fascinated by the detail in nature, possibly a product of his Autism diagnosis and representing this detail efficiently has been a major driving force. Ray started painting in watercolours for fun, later using Oils,
Acrylics, Pastels, and coloured pencils.
