Ria Ray is committed to serving individual and global consciousness. As we live our true selves, we contribute to the greatness and possibility of humanity.
Born in Trinidad and Tobago of Indian descent, Ria's family emigrated to the U.S. when she was six. She grew up in the Washington D.C. area.When Ria was twenty-seven working in the fashion industry in New York, tragedy struck: her entire immediate family-her father, mother, sister, brother and uncle-died in their home of carbon monoxide poisoning.“Truth is not a theory or philosophy, nor does it arrive from the intellect. Truth is an individual experience that evolves with time and involves participation within.”
The shock, horror and mystery of this profound misfortune compelled Ria to seek her purpose. She was moved to study and practice healing and create fine art.
"The void inside was infinite, and yet all I craved to do was give back. I was determined to find what was meant to fill the void not only in myself but in others who struggled with high levels of pain," she explains. As a healer, she teaches that each individual's exploration and acceptance of his or her true self is the way into a peaceful and harmonized life.Ria's healing process helps each individual find and live what is meaningful to him or her. We each hold the ability to heal our self and to use that sacred energy to transform our life to be peaceful, balanced and inspired.
Through Ria's unyielding drive to learn and without premeditation, she began to paint on canvas. She says, "Painting was instantaneously a passage into my soul.
Creativity is the way into individual divine expression and is purely a way of life. It's how we can choose to move through the world-in a state of grace."Her work in healing and on canvas inspires and compels us to experience the depth within. Her work is a constant reminder to let go of fears and pre-conceived notions and stay the course of love-self-love and love for others. As we practice awareness and realize that all things to use that sacred energy to transform our life to be peaceful, balanced and inspired.
Her insatiable drive to inspire led Ria to develop and design a lifestyle product line. Each product serves as a tangible reminder of her teachings.Ria Ray is married with two children; she lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
On canvas Ria Ray creates with mixed media including acrylics, paper, photographs, found objects and poetry. The steadfast pull of the collective soul ignites and informs all of her work. Characterized by bold fields of color and organically textured areas that glimmer with flashes of light, Ria's abstract paintings are fine art and also serve as talismans for diving deeper into consciousness. The subtle, mysterious glow that suffuses her images facilitates the exploration of hopes, dreams and imagination.
Ria fuses color, light, texture and depth to create art that inspires inquiry, compassion and acceptance. Her abstract images are suffused with brave hues and vulnerable shadows, reminding us that true representations of the searching mind and heart must always include hints of uncertainty. "The way in which life is lived is art. Walking though life with the humility to learn and the courage to change when needed is the purest form of art," Ria says.
Ria's pieces hang on the walls of private collectors, Fortune 500 corporations, and offices throughout the entertainment industry. Her art has been exhibited in galleries at UCLA and in Santa Monica, Venice and Beverly Hills.
