Ray Leaning - Corset Artist
Ray Leaning is an artist specializing in erotic images of the female form. His chosen media are pencil & conté on paper, and oil on canvas. Recently he has begun to self-publish some of his more popular paintings and sketches as limited edition prints.
Ray was born in Lincolnshire in November1959. As a teenager he fell in love with rock music, motorbikes, girls and comic book art (Marvel & DC). After a varied early career (crane driver in Scunthorpe steelworks; motorbike courier in Manchester; modeller of life-size fiberglass dinosaurs . . .) Ray was accepted as a mature student at Exeter College of Art. He graduated in Fine Art Painting in 1984. After a brief period teaching art, he began working as a graphic designer in the field of illustrated publishing in Soho.
Nineteen years on, Ray now lives in Brighton with Carol, several offspring and a '76 Bonneville. He continues to freelance as an Art Director and Consultant producing graphics - from company logos & identities to magazine blueprints, from brochures to advertising campaigns for small businesses and international publishers - but has at last found time and space for his first love - painting sexy ladies.
His artwork has been featured in: Cartier International Polo Magazine, The Erotic Review, The Independent, SW magazine, Penthouse, Ritual, Secret Magazine, Skin Two, Marquis, Forum, in Reuters news reports and on BBC and L!VE TV.
