Ron Beach

A Man and His Art
As a boy, Ron Beach developed a passion for nature. While most boys his age were involved in sports, Ron would be found roaming the fields and forests that surrounded his home, doing what he called "nature snooping". At Williamsport Technical Institute now known as Pennsylvania College of Technology, Ron trained to become a draftsman and was hired by the Pennsylvania Department of Highways. Ron also became a deputy game protector with the Pennsylvania Game Commission.


Ron's art career began in 1984 when his Fiancee presented him with an acrylic paint set and introduced him to the artwork of Robert Bateman. Since that time, he has followed Bateman's career and considers him a mentor and the greatest influence on his art. "From the time I received that paint set, I have never laid a brush down. The knowledge and experience have gained from working as a draftsman and with wildlife have contributed to solid foundation for my art. I paint what I like; inspiration for a subject comes from spending time alone in the woods. I look at things that most people would step over. I believe I am getting better with age. I am much happier with my latest work than I am with my earlier work." For a painter who doesn't release many paintings per year, the commitment lies in the quality of the work and the integrity of the composition. "I definitely know what I expect of myself and my work. It takes time to do something well. So much of today is about instant gratification, but anything lasting is the result of time devoted to making it the best." No matter what his subject may be, Beach's paintings will always be known for their thoughtful composition, richly detailed landscapes, and accurately portrayed wildlife.
