Ron began serving on the St. George Arts Commission in January 2019. As a painter and strategic planner, he hopes to contribute to the success of our arts community from both a creative and analytical perspective.

Ron paints primarily with acrylic and mixed media. His art has been displayed in a variety of exhibits, cable television features, and galleries in Utah and California.


Ron was born and raised in Las Vegas, lived throughout the southwest, and later moved his family to St. George - the same community settled by his ancestors in the early 1860s. He earned his MBA at California Baptist University, and Certified Chief Executive designation from Wharton, Cornell, and Virginia.


In 2011 he founded Ron Woodbury Consulting - a firm dedicated to providing not-for-profit organizations with strategic planning guidance.  Ron believes that a strong arts culture and nonprofit base is critical to the wellness of a community. When he isn’t painting, planning, or raising his kids, you can find him venturing about with his camera in hand.
