  Ronald Watkins was born in Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania and has been painting for over 20 years."I always try to learn my craft from the best. I have read every art book I could find and have watched just about every oil painting video out there". Some of the artists Ron has studied with include Gregg Kreutz,Carolyn Anderson,John Budicin,Gladys Roldan-de-Moras,and Janice Yow Hinds.
"I believe that 80% of being a good painter comes from making hundreds of oil painting studies from life.One should paint as often as possible and remember there are no short cuts to that. Like anything else in life one wants to be good at, one must practice and practice".
Ron now lives in San Antonio, Texas and teaches at the Coppini Academy of Fine Arts.
