Being an artist is not a career for me but a calling. Art has a voice, one that everyone can understand and respond to. This means more than just strokes of paint on the canvas or pencil on the paper...it's a lifelong responsibility to the next generation. I am today's chronicler and tomorrow's lesson.

Most of my work is born out of inspiration from external influences as well as experiences from internal convictions. As a rule, i start with an idea, in a message that i'd like to convey then, the draw of the concept in mind and then finally, the actual representation.

Ron is an all round renaissance man; an artist, a passionate wildlife conservationist, author, singer/songwriter, dedicated horseman and devoted husband. This is his story.... Born in 1980 in Zimbabwe, Ron is a young upcoming wildlife and equine artist emerging from the bustle of the city of Harare, Zimbabwe where he is based. Working from both his photographic memory and photos he is vastly rising up in the art scene with his enigmatic and poignant artworks, characterized by their atmospheric appeal. He is the founder and chief artist of The “Save Me” Wildlife Conversation Art Exhibition, an initiative he set up to support wildlife conservation efforts in Botswana. It debuted in August, 2014 attracted 12 participants from 7 different countries including U.S.A, Sweden, and Germany etc.
