Ron has always had a love for carpentry with exotic woods and over the past ten years, he has combined fine detail and innovative design to build fine furniture.
With a background in electronic engineering and an active 35-year career as a professional photographer. He owned a graphic design studio where the use of computers and a CNC router cutting process played an integral role in composing forms and designs for his new passion-Wood Turning.
As his interest for turning increased he now enjoys experimenting with different styles using:
Mixed Media, combining metals, resins, epoxies, acrylic paints and collaborating with his Artist wife Ann.
His primary attraction to this style of composition is a love for modern art and uncluttered geometric design. The abundance of exotic wood plays well into his passion for vibrant color composition.
He has won numerous awards for his work and is currently a member of the Woodworkers Guild of Ontario, Toronto Woodworkers Guild, AAW and has had his work published in American Association of Wood turners magazine.
