As a graduate of the Graphic Arts program at Humber College, Ron began his career as a sign designer and painter. His next job was with one of the largest outdoor advertising companies in Canada, where he reproduced small works of art into outdoor advertising spectacles that reached sizes of up to 1200 square feet. Working with seasoned masters, Ron soon became one of North America’s top artists in his field, with his renditions donning the streets of Canada, the United States, Hong Kong, Saudi Arabia, Australia and South Africa. Having the opportunity to paint celebrity faces and a vast variety of other complex subject matter in huge proportions helped contribute to the development of Ron’s exceptional eye for detail and colour. During Ron’s forty year plus career in advertising, he also managed the hand paint studio, print production, wall mural painting and special effects.
A longtime resident of Burlington, Ontario, Ron currently enjoys painting and illustrating in his home studio.
