Ron Richard Baviello studied art at East Carolina University. His main interest at the time was printmaking and ceramics. He worked several years as an advertising illustrator and graphic artist. Ron is a self-taught painter mainly working in acrylics. He also is a successful computer artist, often incorporating digital images into his acrylic and mixed media works. He has recently returned to his love of printmaking and is currently experimenting with image transfers using various mediums and substrates.
One reason Ron says he loves to paint is that is seems like a magical process, first visualizing and creating images in the imagination and then rendering them in a tangible medium. This is always a challenge, but it is something he truly enjoys. His choice of subject matter is somewhat eclectic. This gives him many different avenues to explore and experiment in developing his diverse creative works. The most successful of these have been his human and animal portraits, landscapes, abstracts, and figurative art verging on the erotic.
