Ray Overpeck lives in Bucks County, PA. His formal
training included studying at the Philadelphia Museum College of Art and
the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art.As a young boy he was always
fond of drawing and during his early youth he was fascinated with the
paintings of Walter Baum, which were displayed in the halls of his
school. These paintings, and later works of the French Impressionists
have always been an inspiration to him.Through the years his work
has evolved from painting in both oil and watercolor to eventually
painting oils in an impressionistic style, which was his first love.
For a change of scene, Ray enjoys painting in Stonington, ME, but his
greatest source of subject matter has always been Bucks County, and the
surrounding areas. Ray's work has been shown in many group and juried
shows. He has received many awards for his work, the most recent being
the award for "Traditional Painting in the style of the New Hope School"
at the 74th Phillips' Mill show.
