Ray and his wife Ruth have been married 46 years and have raised 3 children, six grandchildren and now have one great-grandchild. They are Cree and Métis Indigenous artists. They both have a strong faith in God and Jesus Christ. They have gone through many experiences, both good and bad, that have accumulated some knowledge and wisdom about life that they put into their indigenous art. Their hope is that their convictions and values are reflected in their creative works and/or speaking.
