Ronald Ownbey


Artist Statement

"Ron started painting in his mid-teens on his family’s ranch in California.  After military service, he attended Otis Art Institute of Los Angeles earning his MFA degree, followed by 35 years of teaching art at Mt. San Antonio College in California. Ron’s art is influenced by the serenity, chaos, complexity and vastness of the world and the universe and it’s variety of life forms at 

all visual levels. Using biomorphic shapes, linear movements, patterns and systems that he discovers in nature, he creates new compositions that reflect the inner and outer functions, reactions and rhythms of things growing and changing.
