"There are a few different series of works that I continue to explore which get my creative juices flowing, it keeps me feeling fresh and inspired."


Hamilton-based artist Ron Eady was born in Toronto into a long line of craftsmen, his father being a piano cabinet maker, and his grandfather designed stained glass windows for churches. Ron spent his formative years focused on drawing. He attended a secondary school program for the visual arts then went on to study at Sheridan College in Oakville with further studies at Ontario College of Art. Ron currently works in the encaustic medium, acrylics, oils and sculpture with wood. Eady maintains studios in Hamilton and in the village of Rosseau, Muskoka. There have been numerous articles and reviews of Eady's paintings, his work has been exhibited internationally and his paintings are held in collections in the USA, Canada, Japan and China.

Artist Statement

2023- The collection of artworks were produced over the last couple of years and reflects on Ron Eady’s personal journey of real or imagined situations or stories— sometimes observing from the outside as if it was all a dream. Much of the imagery situates figures and animals in what feels like the climax of a narrative, where the next action could change everything. There is a wonderful nostalgia and mysterious feeling that settles in the viewer when encompassed by the artist’s work. 2020- The works in my current series are inspired by the Urban and Industrial landscapes of Hamilton and other areas. Having the opportunity to tour the ArcelorMittal Dofasco steel making facility was a great experience that provided inspiration for a number of the paintings. I have always been drawn to the raw beauty of industrial architecture, landscapes and waterscapes with freighters and feel it works well with my chosen medium of encaustic. Working from my Hamilton studio I don't have to travel far to find inspiration.
