Ron Lowery has his art studio in the sky.

Using a plane that he and his son built to satisfy his passion for exploration and creating art, nothing excites him more than discovering and photographing unusual scenes and textures from above.

He has flown at low altitudes over sacred Indian lands photographing herds of grazing buffalo and at thousands of feet above the earth to show the sensuous curves of the rivers revealing America’s raw beauty.

When he retraced the famous route of Lewis and Clark from the air, flying this open-cockpit plane, he provided a new artistic perspective on the entire rugged route that the brave explorers followed.

In addition to his fine art prints, Lowery has published two highly successful coffee table books of his stunning photographs, “Chasing Lewis & Clark Across America” and “Tennessee River: Sparkling Gem of the South.”

Lowery and his unusual flying lifestyle have been profiled on PBS and national publications. He continues to do talks and shows across the county, as well as flying and having adventures.
