Ron Esplin - Artist, Dunedin New Zealand
A Lifetime Exposure to ArtRon Esplin has had a lifetime exposure to art as both his late father Tom, and his brother Clark were painters, jointly referring to their involvement in art activities as “The family Firm.”
As soon as he could hold a pencil, Ron was drawing , and he was soon in demand at school doing posters and stage sets for school productions. He continued to paint recreationally, attending evening classes at Otago Polytechnic Art School before embarking in 1995 on a serious effort to develop his painting.
Watercolour PaintingRon has a studio in central Dunedin where he paints in acrylics and oils, and of course he has continued to develop his watercolour painting.

He exhibits regularly in Dunedin, and has also had work exhibited in Otaru in Japan. Ron is also represented in the Dunedin City Council art collection and in the prestigious Forrester Gallery in Oamaru.
