Sunday Evening Art Gallery Blog — Ray Villafane

Artists who truly create from the heart leave lasting impressions on our minds and hearts


Sometimes, those memories are mixed with a bit of awe, a bit of amazement


and a bit of fear


Ray Villafane graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York City in 1991.


Having a passion for children, he elected for a career in teaching.


After several custom-carved requests from students’ parents, Ray realized he was on to something with his pumpkins and started offering them to local hotels and restaurants.


Ray’s hobby of pumpkin carving exploded after winning the Grand Prize for Food Network’s Outrageous Pumpkin Challenge I and II.


The rest, as the cliché points out, is history.
