Biography & Artist's Statements

Art has been the core of Ron Henry's life since early childhood - art and a profound love of the outdoors.

A California native, Ron's formal art training began at the university of San Jose, California and later at the Academy of Art in San Francisco.  For ten years he worked as an art director, illustrator, designer and agency account executive in the graphic arts and advertising business.  Ron's paintings explore a realm where humans and their environment interact to create people with the character of the American West.

Ron's bold, contemporary and colorful approach has earned him placement in some of the finest galleries in California, Texas, Arizona and Colorado.  "Nature is my inspiration", says Ron.  "To achieve the color and balance that I require, I paint in oil and acrylics on gesso board. The many textures this provides enchances feelings I am trying to attain in my images.  Many contempary southwestern artists have influenced me -  Howard Terpning, James Reynolds, Roy Anderson and Ted Conis, to name a few.  Studying their techniques and approaches in design and composition gives me inspiration to further develop and refine my own style."

Today Ron lives and creates in the magnificent surroundings of Grand Junction, Colorado.  When not painting, Ron hikes, bikes, fishes and plays golf.
