Ron Parker

Ron Parker began panting as a career a little late in life. At age 35, after seeing an exhibition of Fenwick Lansdowne paintings, he was inspired to try wildlife painting for himself. His first efforts were successful, and he began to paint fulltime, producing watercolor vignettes of birds and mammals. Over the next 20 years, he continued to develop his technique, progressing from illustrations to paintings that create mood and feeling in their depiction of animals in their natural settings. Ron is a keen hiker and backpacker and draws on his back country experiences to create the authenticity and verisimilitude found in his art. Visit to see more images
