Raye (Pamela Fickes-Miller) was born in Houston Texas. I lived most my life in Texas until 1998 when I started her international adventures, discovering life in Syria, Brazil, Canada and France. I left behind my Interior Design business and began a new life surrounded by new cultures and new environments.
I am artistic, creative and adventurous. Using my creative talent I am an accomplished furniture and jewelry designer, watercolorist, and photographer. I have a BFA in art from the University of North Texas. I taught interior design at the Art Institute of Houston. My background comes to light in my images. Weaving life’s moments and decorative arts into my portfolio.
My photography began seriously while living in Damascus and continues today, several countries later. Paris has provided the backdrop to continue to capture the nuances of life and the unique elements of the city.
Photography represents my curiosity of light and the relationship between people and their direct environment. I live between Paris and Colorado Springs.
