Specializing in the birds of North America
 
Raymond J. Easton has specialized in paintings of North American birds for nearly three decades. The love for his avian subjects comes from a lifetime of being a naturalist, as well as growing up in a small rural town, where he spent most of his time in the great outdoors. The genre of birds, he says, has carved a niche for him in the diverse depths of the fine art community, and his accolades are numerous. Raymond’s work has been labeled “world class” by experts in the field, and his paintings can be found in many private and corporate collections nationwide.
He measures the success of each piece through the delicate execution of what he calls his three most important elements - light, composition and anatomy, and his goal has always been to impact the viewer with his end result product.

Easton has been the featured artist at several juried exhibits throughout the Northeast and mid Atlantic states, and was named “New York State Wildlife Artist of the Year” on four different occasions. He was commissioned by the Department of Environmental Conservation to paint the 1997 New York State duck stamp, and similarly petitioned to design and paint the National Audubon Society’s “Wildlife Conservation Stamps”, where he has painted 20 different North American bird species.
Raymond J. Easton is a signature member of the Artists for Conservation Foundation, whose mission is to support wildlife and habitat conservation, biodiversity, sustainability and environmental education, through art that celebrates our natural heritage.
