Ronaldo was born in Rio de Janeiro and has resided in the U.S. since 1981; on Maui since 1989. Having earned a degree in Illustration from Cal State Long Beach, this adventurous artist feels painting is his life work, always changing, always learning.
Painting color and light, his paintings reflect his respect for the beauty of nature. Subjects such as his harbor scenes, plantation houses and pristine beaches stimulates our intellect to recall history and traditions as well as stirring our spirit with the beauty he portrays.
Presently Ronaldo, Jennifer, Summer and Ocean have happily made their home at Puamana, Lahaina.
