Ron McCormick: Artist

Ron McCormick is an outsider artist from Nova Scotia.  Outsider artists are people with mental health problems who have found a new life through art. 

 Ron says:  “When I was originally in the hospital, I wasn’t communicating property with other people, but then I was able to get hold of some paint and brushes and found I could say what I wanted to say with colour and paint.”

In 2023 he exhibited  on Parliament hill in Ottawa and in 2004 at the National Gallery of Canada.

Ron now lives in Tatamagouche and always welcomes people to his stand at the Tatamagouche Grain Elevator market on Saturday mornings.
