The Official Website of Anna Sandhu Ray
Hi my name is Anna. I was born in the Unica Mountains of Virginia. I began painting at five. My mother always
critiqued my work, which drove me to always do better.
I was a sketch artist for CBS and was envolved in the Snail Darter Trial, which lead to me handling the James
Earl Ray Brushy Mountain Prison escape trial. I assisted Steve Oglesby by sketching James Earl Ray for his
documentary "Ray, the Man". James Earl and I had the same interest in art which lead us eventually
to be married.
Originally, I did a lot of landscape art and sketches of people. My grandmother always wanted me to do floral
paintings, but it wasn't until after her death that I acquired the capabilites of doing florals.
My paintings are currently done with Acrylic Liquitex heavy body paint. It looks like oil, but is even more durable.
I always use this on canvas. My painting starts with a pen and ink, then ink washed with pastel highlights as well
as what I call "controlled splattering". This allows me to use many different colored spots with a brush, to give a
soft, yet colorful impression of scenic features. This gives my art a stained glass type of look, which leads the
viewer to imagine it's a place they would like to go.
I have used watercolor, pen and ink, oil, and pastels(chalk).
I certianly hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy making it for you.
God Bless America
