Raymond began showing his artwork in galleries at the age of twelve. While he was young he emulated the Oklahoma "traditional" style of painting. After moving to Santa Fe, New Mexico, he studied the European masters' work which greatly impacted a new approach to his painting style. His style has also been influenced by impressionism, cubism, Japanese woodblock prints, Chinese masters and pop art. Raymond has worked with several different painting mediums including oil, acrylic, mixed media, monotypes (an oil based printing process), watercolor and etchings.
