As if pre-destined to spend his life in the field of art and the study of American Military history, Ron Tunison set out in pursuit of these interests as early as fifth grade with drawings of Davy Crockett at the Alamo and Pickett's Charge at the Battle of Gettysburg, both of which are proudly displayed today in his working studio.

Ron participates in various reenactment groups that add color and realism to his work. The combination of his knowledge and talent together creates sculptures abundant with detail and a feeling that completely captures the period.
High School teachers and classmates were the first to collect Tunison's artwork and sculptures. After graduation in 1965 came the first commissioned work to do a large-scale diorama of the battle of Gettysburg for the Ft. Defiance Museum, Gettysburg, PA.
Tunison's art education continued at the School of Visual Arts in NYC where he studied painting, illustration, photography, and sculpting before graduating in 1969. In 1971 the illustrious sculptor Granville W. Carter saw Ron's work. He was so impressed with Tunison's sculptures that he procured for him a scholarship to study life figure and portrait modeling and anatomy with Michael Lantz at the National Academy School of Fine Arts in NYC. From 1968 - 1990 he sculpted one-of-a-kind fired clay military figures that were sold through The Soldier Shop on Madison Ave., in NYC and also to private collectors.
His artistic talent and interest in history landed him many commercial photography assignments for Look and Time magazine during the nation's Revolutionary War Bicentennial celebrations. Paperback books and record covers were graced with Tunison photographs. His photography assignments included the 1974 T.V. special "The American Parade" series. On the set of "The 34th Star" starring Richard Kiley, a story about Kansas during the Civil War, Ron was the still photographer.
