Ronnie Collins has had two career paths, both art and music. He grew up in the small Louisiana town of Welsh and moved to Dallas to attend 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, Ronnie decided to follow his passion for art so he moved just outside Austin to a small town call Dripping Springs. Ronnie has had the privilege of painting as a career for the last sixteen years. Now at home in Jennings, Louisiana, he enjoys the challenge of creating custom murals and bringing excitement to ordinary spaces. His talent enables him to paint portraiture, still life and landscape with equal versatility. He also teaches classes and encourages the arts to many students. Ronnie has been able to paint all over the world including Europe and Mexico.
