Ron Hatch has been drawing since he was old enough to hold a pencil. Grade school saw a few attempts with oil painting, but in high school and the discovery of acrylic paints he started to hit his stride. Self-taught for the most part, his artwork soon merged with his fascination with railroads. One of his first jobs was as an illustrator for Burlington Northerns's Safety & Rules Division at the St. Paul home office.
He has also been employed as a residential design/drafter, graphic designer, commercial technical illustrator, and industrial designer. Through it all he has always pursued his interest in railroads, having had several of his works published in books and magazines. Also a modeller, he has had articles published in the model press.
One of his delights is being involved with the annual Galesburg, IL Railroad Days Festival. For over 25 years he has created artwork for the event's posters, many of which have become collector's items.
Ron has very few prints; the majority of his work has been commissioned, going directly to collectors.
