1945 - ?

Raymond Burgoyne was born at Southend-on-Sea, Essex in 1945, son of Joseph William Burgoyne (1 October 1908-1992), a carpenter, and his wife Doris Rose née Nash (1 December 1906-1979), who married at Rochford, Essex in 1932 and in 1939 were living at 58 Torquay Drive, Southend-on-Sea. Ray married at Chelmsford, Essex in 1986, Gillian Patricia Fleming (born February 1957). Painting generously in oils, the shapes tending to be geometric, but then a subtle almost whimsical piece will be delivered with a background in set creation in the theatre, and his work is typically minimal with strong and deep colours. Often collaborating in exhibitions with other artists such as Colin Slee, Kate Giles and Emma Green, Ray falls back on his theatre production and planning skills with consummate ease. He has exhibited at the Ephemeral Gallery, High Street, Saxmundham, Suffolk and is the author of 'Thirteen Paintings' (2020). He lives Blakes Cottage, Chases Lane, Friston, Saxmundham, Suffolk.
