Ron is a quiet, thorough artist who enjoys working methodically and independently. His paintings and drawings all possess a careful precision that is evident through his use of line and composition, which he delineates with flat, vivid colors and an edited palette. The sharp contrast in hues carry as much compositional weight as the few key details he chooses to include, whether it’s in the piercing yellow-eyed stare of one of his subjects or a crimson-feathered robin peeking out from its natural habitat. Sourcing his images mostly from fashion magazines, photography books, or National Geographic catalogs, Ron’s work consists primarily of people with the occasional study in wildlife.
Ron has been making art at Creative Growth since 1981.
