Ron was studying the Old Masters techniques and using these in both landscapes and Australian history paintings before meeting Jennifer Jowett in an art gallery, where they discovered a shared interest and similarity of style. This led to them working on a series of 4 paintings with which they won the Mackay Airport Mural competition. Five years later they married, and were commissioned to do some historical paintings for the Nebo Shire council. This led to a series of 12 paintings, of an old goldmining town in 1881-2 called The Mount Britton Collection. In 2005 Ron decided to revisit painting the Light Horse, and they went to a Light Horse re-enactment armed with a camera. From then on they have majored in researching and painting the Australian Light Horse, and have developed a reputation for authenticity in this area.
However, Ron is a bit of a gypsy, and loves free-camping in his 40 year caravan which he has rebuilt to be self-sufficient with solar. So together with their two cats they roam the outback areas, armed with camera to record the scenery, some of which inspires Ron into painting his masterful oil and tempra (which he mixes himself) landscapes.
