Ron Christiansen / The Artist
Born and living in Thunder Bay, Ontario Canada,(former cities of Port Arthur and Fort William), Ron is a graduate of Port Arthur Collegiate, Thunder Bay, Ontario; of Waldorf Junior College, Forest City, Iowa and Concordia College (University), Moorhead, Minnesota, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and English.
In 1991, Waldorf College presented him with the Alumni Distinguished Service Award for "Dedicated Service to Native Canadians, as consultant and advocate on their behalf, and for extraordinary contributions to the human development field."
His BOLD use of colour reflects both his Norwegian heritage and his love for the north country - particularly its people. He has an uncanny ability to go around cultural barriers and capture the essence of his subject.
His paintings have been sold in Canada, the United States, the Netherlands and Norway.
He attributes his inspiration to his late Dutch born wife Anneke,
his deceased son Mark, and his remaining son, Erik, and
his daughter Dorothy who currently resides is Liberia..
For the last several years he has very happily shared his
with the truly lovely
Giovannina Vincenza Nigro.
