Ronan Spelman is another one of my crazy talented friends and so worth checking out.
We worked together many years in animation at DreamWorks and he was the one I trusted with my wedding photos which turned out fabulous and I looked like a movie-star in them. Ronan has an amazing eye for the beauty in everything and he brings it to his art in many ways.
In his first art show many years ago he mixed his photography skills with digital painting and we knew then that there would be more to come from this artist. I bought two pieces back then and I was lucky enough to be one of few to have received a very personal piece from Ronan that he made for my birthday in 2002.
He has had many phases of different art styles over the years and dabbled in traditional as well as digital art. His new style of painting is very colorful and he has returned to his traditional routes. Check his work out online, on Etzy and Deviant Art under Artofronan.
