Ray Dugan was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and educated at Victoria College, University of Toronto and Yale University, New Haven, Connecticut, U.S.A.
His career as a University Professor was mainly at the University of Waterloo. Ray and his wife Sylvia raised two sons who died tragically in 1993.
Ray’s passionate interest in history, art and language, as well as his need for bereavement threapy led him to embroider a full reproduction of the Bayeux Tapestry. His stunning recreation in linen and wool was 11 years in the making, and allows the public to view a precious historical document which many have called “the first comic strip.”
You can see Ray’s paintings at Dugan’s Art Gallery, a website dedicated to his work.
