Born in London, Ontario, Ron has employed a wide spectrum of artistic techniques over the years. In printmaking, sculpting, and painting he incorporates images from books and museums into his artwork, adapting them to create a contemporary image. Ron studied art at H. B. Beal Secondary School in London and Mount Allison University in New Brunswick. His work has been exhibited in various locations across Ontario and the East Coast of Canada. Currently, Ron is teaching intaglio (etching) at his childhood secondary school in London where he also continues to produce a variety of artwork in different media.
Three specific themes continue to cycle in the images of my work; nature, technology and history. All are portrayed through a visual narrative and with a sense of humour. These elements have served me well and have allowed me to employ several different approaches and media over the years.
