Raymond Arthur Roadnight

Dip.FPAA

I was born in 1941 in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, England. My childhood was for the most part unrestricted and my friends and I enjoyed the freedom to the full. During the long summer school holidays we romped through the Buckinghamshire hills, beech woods and the fields, often camping, going home only to stock up with food.

I was educated at High Wycombe Technical School, then spent a year at High Wycombe Art College. I married the delightful young Isobel and we managed to become parents to two exceptional young men who exceed in their chosen careers.

I spent three years in the employment of Patrick Reyntiens and John Piper making stained glass windows. These works included the great baptistry window in the New Coventry Cathedral. The enormous “Lantern” on top of the Catholic Cathedral in Liverpool and the grand windows in Oundle school chapel. These works may be regarded as some of the best in England.

I have exhibited works in the Royal Academy and the “Young Contemporaries” in London, The Alfred East Gallery Kettering, Chichele College in Higham Ferrers, Burleighfield House in Loudwater and FPAA Exhibitions.

I would like to acknowledge the Late Geoff Baker for pointing me in the right direction, the Late Martin Simons for encouraging me to paint again after a ten year lapse, and John Black for his continuing support.

“My life is all about art. I live and breathe art and design”.
