Singerton Fine Arts
Ron Singerton is a professional artist, working in glass, stone, paint, ceramics, and bronze. He and his wife, Darla, own and create works for online sales, art galleries, shows, and more, via Singerton Fine Arts.
Avid Horseman and Saber Fencer
An avid horseman and saber fencer with a special interest in the American Civil War, Singerton “heard the bugle and the sound of the drums” and became a reenactor riding with the Union cavalry in dozens of engagements from California to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
Over the last thirty years has developed an expertise in painting as well as crafting bronze, stone and glass. Though many of his works are representational and even evoke impressionist techniques, he has avidly plunged into the world of experimentation with abstraction in oil, acrylics, and his sculptural designs.
As an award winning artist, he has displayed in numerous shows and galleries and is currently involved in the creation of large canvases and monumental size bronze sculptures. He is a full-time artist and lives with his wife, Darla, in the mountains near Idyllwild, California.
Ron also developed a particular love for writing and historical research. During the early 1980s, Singerton authored a series, Moments in History, of some thirty mini-books on legendary people and events ranging from Columbus to the moon landing. The books were adopted as supplementary teaching material for the State of California and approved by the Los Angeles school board as a teaching aid. Published by Santillana, the original editions are considered collector’s items.
Once completing his “Rome” novels, Ron’s writing turned to the late 19th and 20th centuries with “A Cherry Blossom in Winter,” a history of the intense love of a young nobleman for a Japanese lady during the Russo Japanese war of 1904-1905. This novel received the First Place International Goethe Award by Chanticleer. Soon to be published is the sequel, “A Blossom in the Ashes,” as the families experience love and terror during World War II in the Pacific as well as the Soviet Union.
