Ray Brown’s preferred medium is pencil. Pencil is a very direct tool of expression, and when viewing a finished drawing, one is able to see right to the core of the artist’s effort.

He received third place in The Artist’s Magazine 2010 art competition and The Best Drawing for 2011 in Strokes of Genius 3.

There is a pure joy that emanates from working with one’s head and hands. I pursued that joy, getting a degree in sculpture, studying anatomy, learning to make molds, carving stone, welding, foundry work, and working with many great artists. There is magic in doing the work of art, but the real magic is found in the timeless struggle to make each work a great epiphany or miracle. My work is simply unveiling God’s hand as it relates to each of His creations from the glory of the soaring eagle, to the tragedy and nobility of mankind. Jeff Rudolph is best known for his stone carvings and monumental designs. Often his sculptures start as non-subjective abstract designs.
