Biography
Ron Peer is a well established painter and highly accomplished portrait artist
 with many important commissions to his credit during the 
past 32 years of his professional career.

His oil and pastel portraits are sensitively and realistically painted with great dedication to his craft and a minimum of inconvenience to his subjects.  Possessed with a highly trained memory and having mastered the skill of painting from photographs, most of his portraits can be painted in the absence of the subject.

Ron studied in Europe and in New York City at the National Academy and the Arts Students League, receiving commendations for his artistic excellence.  His compositions hang in private collections throughout the world.  He maintains studios in the Adirondack Region  of New York State and in New Jersey.  







You will find his commissions around the region in various venues,
 such as ADK Community College, Glens Falls Hospital and more.
