Ron Wilson studied Art at Bretton Hall 1971/ 73. Then followed forty years of teaching as a classroom teacher and Head of Art.
Upon retirement he became a full-time professional artist, specialising in printmaking and painting, working from his studio at The Art House in Wakefield.
Much of his output has been influenced by his work as a freelance Archaeological Illustrator; consequently there is a mix of the ancient and folklore running through his pictures, creating a narrative, often esoteric, which encourages the viewer to create their own narrative, adding to the layers meaning within the work.
Ron uses Drypoint printing, Collograph and brush work in making monotypes; his palette is narrow and restricted to dark tones in order to create a sense of mystery.
He is currently exploring the potential of using Tetra Pak packaging as printing plates.
