About Ron W McDowell

Ron W McDowell "A man who works with his hands is a laborer. A man who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. A man who works with his hands and his head and his HEART is an ARTIST."

I was born in Geneva, NY on a military base hospital to a typical military Air Force family of 4. After living in various locations including Japan,Texas, New Jersey, Detroit I was raised in Wyoming where my father retired.

I have been an artist for as long as I can remember, and professionally since 1980. I am a product of a family of talented artists and musicians, so at age 24, after exploring many different types of work from furniture moving to cake decorating, it seemed a natural progression to pursue as a career the work I always loved and excelled in, so with meager savings set out to New Mexico to answer my calling.

For the most part, my paintings are rendered in oil, directly, as in one session. My reference materials may be life, or photographic reference, or even memory, sketches and imagination. Subject matter varies, but a common thread is often emphatic dramatic light and the figure whether it is a night scene, still life, or romantic images of a couple caught up in the passion of dance.

I have exhibited and sold in the finest galleries, museums and shows in the United States and internationally, have among his collectors Wilson Hurley, Walt Gonske and the football great, Troy Aikman,

After some 30 years as a professional fine artist, I am now pursuing other challenges and creative expressions that have taken me away from the easel and into worlds beyond, and in keeping with my quest to fully explore my creative bent, I reinvented myself and successfully completed an intensive program of schooling for massage therapy at IBMC college in Fort Collins for Massage Therapy. I am now a licensed and practicing massage therapist (RT Massage), using my hands to impart wellness and create a more beautiful state of being through therapeutic bodywork.

My work can be viewed online on this site, and any purchases will go directly through me and shipped from my studio if necessary and I am happy to extend to you the opportunity to expand or begin your collection with my most recent work. I anticipate hearing from you soon and thank you for your support through the years. I encourage you to take the opportunity to own work that will never be duplicated again.
