Ron Marvin

As a resident of St. Petersburg, Florida, Ron began painting at the age of eleven. He was the youngest child to be invited to the highly respected art class of David Anderson. Anderson requested some of Ron's work to be in his first gallery which opened in 1973. By age fourteen, Ron was presenting annual one-man invitational shows and soon became the second highest grossing artist in the gallery. The St. Petersburg Times declared him a prodigy as they chronicled his life each year.

By the age of eighteen, Ron had won many local and national awards, including a scholarship to the Art students League of New York. His work has appeared in the winning pages of many national publications including Artist Magazine, American Artist, International Artist Magazine, as well as in the hard cover book "The Best of Portrait Painting" by North Light Publishers. In 2008, Ron placed first in the "Paint the Town" plein art competition in St. Petersburg. Ron has painted commissioned portraits of judges, politicians and many other prominent community leaders, including Judge Sanderlin and Professor Eleazor from Stetson University College of Law.

He is a member of the Portrait Society of America, and plans on continuing entering nationally recognized competitions.
