Ronald Rae

Biography from McTear's

Ronald Rae was born in Ayr, Scotland in 1946.  Whilst still in short trousers he struck his first granite rock.  At the age of twelve he was drawing a weekly cartoon strip for a local newspaper.  Drawing would be an important part of his life but sculpture his main love and obsession.

In the beginning Rae explored his faith through his art.  This resulted in a large series of emotive drawings and carvings based on the life of Christ.  Being brought up in the countryside it followed that he expressed his appreciation of animals in his art.

Aware of his Celtic heritage he thrilled at seeing Scotland’s ancient carved stones and Celtic crosses that often included wild boar, horses and bears.  In response he has carved all these animals.  Rae is one of Scotland's best known sculptors.
