Ron was born in 1946, and attended school in Okarche, Oklahoma.  He then attended the University of Oklahoma, receiving a BFA in Design in 1969.  After spending two years in the U.S. Army he returned to Oklahoma and was employed as a jeweler.

In 1976, he became self-employed as a jeweler and returned to post graduate work receiving an MFA in Metal Design from the University of Oklahoma in 1980.  From his thesis show, one of the bracelets was chosen to be shown in the Schmuck (Jewelry) Museum in Pforzheim, Germany and three were selected to be shown in the Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian Museum.  The bracelets would become part of the Smithsonian “GOOD AS GOLD” contemporary jewelry exhibit which was shown in numerous museums across North and South America.

Ron has shown his work and participated in shows and exhibited his work in numerous galleries across the United States. In 2004 he produced granulated gold rings, pendants, and ear rings in the  granulated style in conjunction with the “ETRUSCAN TREASURES” exhibit at the Mabee-Gerrer Museum of Art in Shawnee, Oklahoma.

Ron also taught art for twenty years for the Oklahoma City Public Schools retiring in 2013.  He continues to produce jewelry and art objects in his studio in Yukon, Oklahoma.
