Ronald Barba, Mount Dora Member Since November 2011 Artist Statement Greetings. My name is Ronald Barba and I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. The passion for drawing has been such a prominent part of my life I decided to attend the Kubert School of Art in New Jersey where I studied drawing and obtained my degree. I did some art after leaving school, but decided to pursue another profession. Ultimately I decided to join the Law Enforcement community and am loving the experience. In addition to being a Deputy on patrol, I am also a Forensic Artist in my department and am ready to begin selling some personal pieces, with the love and support of my family.
My mother, Effie Barba, is a novelist and you will see my artwork on her publications, A Broken and Contrite Heart (book 1) and Mountaintop Experiences in the Valley (book 2). She is getting ready to release another publication, which will feature my artwork on the cover.
