Biography from a third party submitted on 05/24/2010:
Ron Boyd was born in Forest Grove Oregon in 1942 and studied art in Franklin High School, Portland and at Portland State University.  In order to support a family he dropped out of college and became a professional portrait photographer, working and traveling all over the Pacific Northwest.

He soon found comraded at the pool tables and became known as a 'tough customer' and the tough competition came his way.  At one time, he played Luther Lassiter, Ronnie Allen, Dan Louie, Mike Massey and Jimmy Carus all of whom were world champions.  He won a game of 8 ball against Jimmy Carus.  Dan Louie and he broke even after six hours of play. "I played pool because I always wanted to be great at something, so I found that outlet in pool."

He married three times and had four biological children and two stepchildren.  In 2000 Ron's health issues forced him to stop traveling so he settled down and started painting again, just as he'd left off 30 years earlier.  When he started painting, he said it felt almost as if I'd never stopped. 

His paintings drew attention from other artists, but he needed to set up his own studio so he moved to Seaside Oregon in 2005 and moved in with his second wife, Penne Ehrer-Boyd.  They painted together for several years before he established a studio of his own near the beach where he could concentrate on his work entirely.

Boyd's health is still an issue from time to time but he continues to produce prolifically and displays his work at a nearby gallery.
