Born in Berkeley, California, Ron Bimrose showed an early interest in art and natural history. His travels brought him to Arizona to study with Allen Dutton at Phoenix College, which eventually led to a Master of Fine Art at Arizona State University. While working on his master’s degree Bimrose began to combine photography and printmaking with both etching and monotypes. This mix of drawing, painting, collage and photo-collage that is now what Bimrose is most known for.
Ron Bimrose teaches and exhibits work based in photography, printmaking and mixed-media painting. He currently teaches printmaking at the Mesa Arts Center. Bimrose has been represented by a number of Arizona galleries: HMF Contemporary Art Gallery, Elaine Horwitch Gallery, G2, and now Tilt Gallery. His work is represented in many collections both private and public including the National Baseball Hall of Fame, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Mesa Contemporary Art Museum, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Plains Art Museum, among others. In 1996 Bimrose was awarded a Visual Arts Fellowship from the Arizona Commission of the Arts.
