Sara Ray

Sara Ray’s roots are steeped in Southern California hot rod culture and surf lore. She was born in Hermosa Beach, California to a family of artists, surfers and hotrodders where customs by George Barris shared space with hotrods in the family garage. Self taught as a painter, She is also an avid war historian with a special bent for World War II iconography and legend. The consummate hot rod artist, Sara wrenches on her cars whenever she can and is a firm believer in the Viking saying, “buy a steed when it is lanky and a sword when it is rusty.” She owns a 1942 Ford Army jeep , a 1939 Cadillac La Salle dressed out like an army staff car in honor of George S. Patton, and a ’53 Buick full custom she calls the “Prussian Widow.” Sara’s thinly layered oils on canvas and glistening motorcycles portray a heady mix of nose art, pulp fiction, fascination with “Kustum Kulture” and the supernatural. Her work has been featured in numerous magazines worldwide from Easyriders and Guitar Player to Juxtapoz and Iron Horse.
