Ron McIntosh is a Trompe L'oeil painter from Laramie, Wyoming. Ron's passion for creating art and educating students has served him well in more than twenty years of K-12 and university classrooms.
Much as a surgeon will sometimes take up an activity such as playing the piano or tying fishing lures to enhance dexterity, Ron is commonly found with pencil in hand sketching as he maintains the hand control he needs to create Trompe L'oeil works. Ron's talent has been recognized by many, and his works have sold in several galleries across the Rocky Mountain region, in addition to being displayed in many prominent shows and locations.
