Failed artist? How could that be? There are starving artists, those legends who supposedly sacrifice material well-being for the sake of art, but a “Failed Artist”? Is this an artist at failure? A failure in art? A failure at exhibiting all the trappings that make one appear to be an artist? A failure at life in general who wishes to be an artist?

Ron Connors was born in Great Falls, Montana in the United States. His earliest influences in art were his grandfather and father who were both inclined towards creativity and art.

Ron has said, “I don’t paint to fill a space on a wall but rather to fill a space in a soul.” He believes that people who join his audience by acquiring his paintings become soul mates as they have something they will share for eternity.
