Raised in western New York, Ron’s talent was supported and nurtured by his parents and teachers. He majored in art at Niagara County Community College, helping to solidify techniques in drawing and painting.
As a realist, Ron uses color and variety of tones to create drama, inviting the viewer into the painting. Exploring new techniques and ways to work with mediums to express the nature of his heart and soul, Ron focuses on environments that illicit a feeling of calm, serenity, beauty and the divine.
For 5 years, Ron was the President of the Deer Park Arts Council, a non-profit charity that advocates for the visual and performing arts in the Deer Park School District. Ron has used his college training to create and offer drawing and painting classes for residents in nursing homes, hospitals and in his studio.
