Those talents lead to a 37-year career at Hallmark Cards as an artist, painter and engraver. At Hallmark, Ron mentored and taught workshops for fellow artists. He helped to develop the creative staff of approximately 600 artists through expanding the skills of the individual artists.Ron's work received some high acclaim. His art is part of the collection at the Smithsonian Museum, the Truman Presidential Library, the Ralph Foster Museum, the College of the Ozark, the American Banjo Museum, the American Jazz Museum, the New York City Fire Fighters' Museum and the Nuevo Santander Gallery in McAllen, Texas. Some of his special works included White House Christmas cards for several Presidents and several first-day issue stamps for the United States Postal Service, including covers of Winston Churchill, Harry S. Truman and musician Charlie Parker.
