A mother's tears, a father's prayers, angels keeping watch Ron Dicianni is an artist whose heart is evident in the work of his hands. An illustrator for over thirty years, DiCianni graduated from the American Academy of Arts in Chicago.

He has been nationally recognized, as well as commissioned by some of the largest corporations in America: ABC, NBC, the 1980's Olympic Games and the Smithsonian. In 2001, he was commissioned to do a painting of President George W. Bush, entitled Addressing the Almighty.

DiCianni's credits include cover illustrations for such well-known books as This Present Darkness, Piercing the Darkness, and Angelwalk and is the creator and illustrator of the award-winning Tell Me Series, featuring partnerships with Max Lucado, Joni Eareckson-Tada, and Michael Card.

The artist has authored Beyond Words, a collection of his favorite paintings with personal devotions, Travels of Messenger, A Brush with God's Word and I'll Wait Right Here. Praying with the Presidents, a children's book by CharismaKids will join the soon-to-be-published The Faith of the Presidents, a historical account of our nation's heritage.

A five-time, Gold Medallion winner for Excellence in Christian Literature, DiCianni has founded Art2See  in partnership with Somerset House Publishing to reclaim the Arts for Christ.

Ron is a native of Chicago and lives in Southern California with his wife, Pat, and his two best works of art, Grant and Warren.
