This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted March 2005, is from the artist.

Ron McDowell was born in upper New York state but was reared in Cheyenne, Wyoming where his father retired after 20 years of military service. Having come from a family of artists and musicians, McDowell's talent was recognized early in elementary school. His first one-man show at age 15 was a simple affair but stirred his desire to paint seriously.

In 1980, he moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico to build a career in art. He lived and painted there for five years, while selling work in galleries throughout the western United States.

In 1990, McDowell moved to Colorado and found 'home' was close to the mountains. After developing an allergy to oil solvents, experimentation with other media such as acrylics, watercolors, goauche and egg tempera became a part of his creative process. Recently, more user-friendly materials allowed a return to the medium of his choice, oils.

McDowell's paintings emphasize light and form and often feature images of the female form, dramatic nocturnes and recently the romance and sensuality of dance. His paintings have found their place in such public collections as Sunwest Bank's permanent collection in Albuquerque, NM; Memorial Hospital in Cheyenne, WY; the University of Texas Law school, as well as many private collections from New York to California.

Ron has been represented in several art galleries throughout the country, published in magazines such as "Art Talk", "Art of the West", "Southwest Art", and books including "The Best of Portrait Painting". His work has won numerous awards in local and national venues, and he has been a regular participant in exhibitions such as "New West" at the Eiteljorg Museum, Indianapolis, The Colorado Governor's Invitational, and the Northern Colorado Artists Association exhibition, for which he received a 'best of show' award in 2001. McDowell has also been a three time 'best of show' winner at the Saratoga Festival of the Arts, Saratoga, Wyoming. Most recently, (March 2005) his commissioned portrait of Justice Ralph Coyte was permanently intsalled in the Coyte Library at the Justice Center, Ft. Collins, Colorado.

McDowell now keeps a busy schedule of painting and marketing his art from his studio in Loveland, and galleries in several western states, while exhibiting in shows near and far.
