JUNE  3, 2017: RONNIE COLLINS, Lowland Louisiana

Ronnie Collins has had two career paths, both art and music. He grew up in the small Louisiana town of Welsh and attended the Art Institute Of Dallas, where he graduated in 1989, with an associate degree in Visual Communications. He was able to work in many areas including silk screening, advertising agencies, and at a local television station in Lake Charles.

In 1991, Collins decided to follow his passion for art and has studied with several master painters throughout his career and has painted in Europe and Mexico. Now at home in Jennings, Louisiana, he enjoys “the challenge of creating custom murals and bringing excitement to ordinary spaces.” Collins has been commissioned to create large murals in cities across the country, including in Chicago, San Diego, and his hometown of Jennings, as well as in many communities throughout Louisiana. His talent enables him to paint portraiture, still life and landscape with equal versatility. He also teaches art classes to many students.
