Ronald Tinney

Ronald J. Tinney was born in 1958 in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, and is a graduate of Penn State University and Ohio Northern University Law School.

Following a full career as a lawyer, Tinney decided to pursue art later in life, and is now a full-time artist focusing on landscape painting, spending much of his time painting coastal landscapes and marine scenes in oils. He paints on-location year round, studying nature and creating source material for his larger studio paintings.

Ronald J. Tinney’s signature landscapes highlight the beautiful coloring effects that sunsets and sunrises have on the coastal region he is surrounded by. Painting on location, Tinney spends much time in these environments, and often catches boats coming in at the end of the day, under the blanket of soft warm sunsets. Vibrancy and tranquility pair well in the striking yet serene compositions he manages to capture.
