Welcome to Ron Nelson's Alley Arts Webpage!

Welcome to the home page for my studio, "Ron Nelson's Alley Arts." I've been an artist in the Tucson area for more than 25 years. My art work is heavily influenced by southwestern design.


I make cast paper pieces which are made almost entirely of recycled materials: shredded newspaper, house paint, and reused pieces of wood for framing. The newspaper is primed, poured into a mold, dried and painted. The result is a painting with an interesting 3-D effect.

Please look around the site for pictures of my artwork to see the things I'm currently working on, and the things I've done in the past. You'll find a wide variety of art which can fit in either your home or local art gallery







I was recently featured on Arizona Illustrated for my Open Studio Tour. Click here for the video!
