For many years, Ray Oster serviced several local camps in Haliburton County as part of his business. Soon he and his late wife Karen started taking courses at Fleming College’s School of Art and Design. Hooked on Haliburton, in 2002 he built a cottage and has spent time there throughout the years with his family and friends. His passion for art and the outdoors led him to the Sculpture Forest. He has been a member of the Sculpture Forest Board and an enthusiastic supporter of art in a natural setting for many years.
