An Amazing Story
Ron Newdoll is an inventor and entrepreneur, who has experimented with many types of business. He is also the artist's dad. While Julie Newdoll was growing up, Ron ran his own recording studio. He went on to invent many things related to the recording industry. One of his inventions, a high speed tape duplicator, caught the eye of some people in Zimbabwe trying to make a living by producing cassettes to sell of the bands they were recording. As the people of Zimbabwe are not allowed to have access to many american dollars, and their currency was of no use to an American doing business with them, Ron agreed to trade them the equipment they needed in exchange for some of their sculpture. They were happy to be able to support themselves with their new sea-tainer (8 x 8 x 20) of equipment, and Ron now had a sea-tainer full of beautiful Shona sculpture from Zimbabwe to grace the Brush with Science Gallery, located in the main office of his solar powered industrial complex.
