“Good art is more than good decoration…it’s the communication in the gesture of the figure or the expression on the face. In that I find my joy!” ~Ron Head

A lifetime of experience, continuing education, and interest in a variety of spiritual disciplines has given Ron Head’s work a multi-cultural and inspirational spirit.

“I trust in my art to affect people on an emotional level. I strive for synergy between the viewer, myself and the work of art,” Ron says.

Ron’s passion for art has been evident throughout his educational and career path. In high school he was awarded two scholarships to the Interlochen Arts Academy in Interlochen Michigan. He studied at the University of Michigan and received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of California Santa Barbara. After a few years as a gallery artist he went back to school at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan. From there he went to work as a graphic designer and eventually began his own advertising agency, working in print, radio and television.

It was in 1998 that Ron attended classes at the Scottsdale Artists School in Arizona and found his love for sculpture. Working three-dimensionally rekindled his passion for the fine arts.

Ron describes his style of working as spontaneous and his experience as transcendental. “I start with a brush stroke or a lump of clay and allow the process itself to develop the piece,” he says. “I feel that openness to the moment is an intrinsic part of art.”

The artist works in oils and acrylic, terra cotta and bronze, ivory and wood—and says he will work in “ice, sand, water or in the air if that is what it takes to create something new and exciting.”
