After attending the American Academy of Art in Chicago, Ron embarked on a career in commercial illustration. Quickly recognized as one of the nation’s most talented illustrators, Ron’s client list was soon dominated by the top companies in America. One passion still overshadowed that success: the desire to reclaim the Arts for Christ. In 1989, he produced the painting that started a revolution: Spiritual Warfare. What began with one painting led into a whole market for Christian-themed art. Ron is passionate about his art and Jesus Christ. He has produced hundreds of Biblically-themed pieces of art, including his 40-foot Resurrection mural, a permanent installation at the Museum of Biblical Art in Dallas. Ron will continue to raise the bar for Christian artists. He currently works from his studio in Temecula, California.
