Ron was born in Detroit and attended The Art School of the Detroit Society of Arts and Crafts, later Center for Creative Studies.  He has had many solo and juried group shows as well as commissions. His work is a unique artistic vision in a contemporary style, embodying the essential mystery and spiritual beauty of nature and the human psyche.
"Rather than depict the specific, I use veils of color in a personal, poetic manner using a harmony of forms from observed, created, and remembered sources.  I paint with enough content that the mind and imagination are pleased and with enough literal image that the eye is also satisfied. Hopefully, my art conveys a sense of art spirit, balance, and beauty."
