raymond difley news: as some of you know may or may not know, i became the proud father of a baby girl (mia ray), who was born on september 20, 2006. undeniably, she is the best thing to ever happen to my wife and i. my life has been filled with new joys and challenges and it has taken until now to get back into the studio. it has been quite a challenge but i am managing to find the balance and get back into gear.

i am currently working on some new and exciting pieces that you will be able to see during this year’s san francisco open studios. in addition to preparing for this event, i have also kept busy researching galleries, both in th ebay area and nationally to build potential partnerships. i will keep you informed of any positive outcomes.
