Ronald is a proud Gunai man. The grandson of Dulcie (Dolly) Mullet and Watson Pepper, Ronald’s family moved to Morwell in the 1960s from Lake Tyers Mission. Since graduating from Federation University with a Bachelor of Visual and Media Arts in 2017, Ronald has completed several commissions and participated in numerous exhibitions, in Australia and overseas. Ronald primarily paints in acrylics on canvas, sometimes incorporating ochre into his work. He also enjoys experimenting with non-traditional materials such as neon and glow in the dark paint. Recently Ronald took over the Metro Tunnel hoarding at City Square with this large-scale artwork, that was viewable 24/7.
