Ronnie’s work, which can be found in many private collections in Australia and around the world, are beautifully crafted, vibrant and colourful. His designs, influenced by the great Desert artists of his closed environment, are full of symbolism and ritualistic meaning depicting traditions, rituals and ceremonies of his culture as passed on to him by his elders. His main themes are men’s ceremonial designs and particularly the Mulga Seed Snake Dreaming and the Bush Plum Dreaming.
