Ron grew up in Detroit, car city, motown and in his first 20 years found himself surrounded by art, design and great music. In 1971, Ron immersed himself in art, art history and design. In 1975 he graduated with a Design Degree from The College for Creative Studies. He joined a renowned art & design studio where he honed his skills for another four years.
Never one to be afraid of hard work or deadlines, Ron was invited to join the international advertising network of Young & Rubicam and for the next twenty-five years he focused his attention on the strategic building and management of major brands around the world. From the USA, Mexico, Canada, Bermuda, Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, New Zealand to Australia.
Still, he never lost his passion or interest in studying watercolours, life drawing and oil painting. Happily, Ron left the Agency scene in 2005 and now likes to see where his painting can take him, “to see is to invent” –Dali ‘Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.’
Ron prefers to work in oils, acrylics + other mixed textures on canvas, linen, board, and metals. He likes to set a colourful and contrasting mood for the viewer to feel a way into the work; acquires his inspiration from his family, friends and artists like, Tom Roberts, Dali, Eric Clapton, Helmut Newton, Brett Whiteley and The Surf. He has exhibited and sold works around the world.
