Ron Clavier was born in Montreal in 1948. He attended McGill University, and earned a bachelors degree in psychology, with a specific focus on the relationship between science and the arts.
Following his undergraduate days, Ron attended Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, where, in 1974, he earned a Masters and a Doctorate in Physiological and Experimental Psychology.
Ron has held many studio tours and had successful one-man exhibitions at the Rosedale United Church, the First Unitarian Church, and the North Toronto Station. His paintings have also been featured in the Canadian periodical “The Parkhurst Exchange” and in The Journal of Steinbeck Studies. His multimedia exhibition: “Awe and Humility and Joy: A Tribute to John Steinbeck” was exhibited at the Joseph D. Carrier Gallery in Toronto in October, 2014. That exhibition led to his being appointed to the Advisory Board of the Centre for Steinbeck Studies at San Jose State University. His project “Pandora Revisited” was exhibited at the Joseph D. Carrier Gallery in Toronto in May, 2015.
Ron lives in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario, and works from his home studio.
