Born in 1958, artist Robert Charon grew up in the metro Phoenix area of Arizona. Robert began to cultivate his creative mind at a very early age. In fact, his first private show was held at a local private library when he was only twelve years old. In high school, Charon developed a love of watercolors, and continued to pursue his education through art scholarships to colleges in both Arizona and Utah. During a break in his undergraduate years, Robert spent two years in Taiwan where he acquired an impassioned fondness of oriental tradition and art. Charon draws from his experiences in Taiwan and the influence of eastern culture for inspiration as an artist. For Robert, the splendor of nature and wonder of the world itself leaves an impression that long outlasts any one artistic movement.
