Ray Buffalo is an accomplished woodworker, furniture maker, and artist with a unique and captivating style. Born and raised in San Jose California, Ray's passion for art began at a young age. He learned woodworking skills in his father's cabinet shop, and as a child, he would spend hours sketching and drawing.
Ray initially went to college with plans to become an engineer, but was ultimately called to complete a B.F.A. at Santa Clara University. He moved to San Francisco in 1992 and relied on his extensive woodworking and shaper skills to earn a living, ultimately acquiring his own woodworking shop, which specialized in curved architectural mouldings, in San Francisco's SOMA. All the while, he continued to paint, his true passion. More recently, he has used his artistic talents and woodworking skills to create exceptional sculptures and studio furniture pieces.
Despite his success, Ray remains humble and grounded, always striving to push himself creatively and explore new mediums and techniques. He is deeply committed to his craft, and his passion for art is evident in every piece he creates.
