    Art Brokerage: Ron Louque American Artist: Ron Louque, was born in New Orleans, Louisiana. While growing up in south Louisiana, he was introduced to the beauties of nature through hunting and fishing, and by age nine he was enrolled in a taxidermy correspondence course. This art-form became a passion for the young outdoorsman, and it soon led him deeper into the world of birds and animals that inhabited the swamps of his bayou homeland. While mounting hundred's of specimens during his teenage years, Louque's interest in the natural world deepened, and eventually lead him to his formal study of nature. He entered Louisiana State University as a forestry/wildlife major in 1970, but he soon switched to zoology and ornithology, a curriculum more suited to his interest, Birds. In 1974 Louque began his career as a professional artist. He was immediately seen as the new "Audubon", French-Cajun style, and his early work reflected that influence. His paintings, combining anatomical accuracy as well as sheer beauty, led to his becoming one of the top five duck and conservation stamp artists in the nation by the late 1980's. His paintings have been featured on 29 State Conservation Stamps. He won the Federal Duck Stamp Art Contest, the nations most prestigious wildlife art competition in 2003. Louque has personally exhibited his work in 88 cities in America. His artwork has been sold in over 500 galleries across the U.S. Over 110,000 prints, and over 600 of his original paintings can be found in public and private collections throughout the U.S., Louque's paintings have raised millions of dollars for wildlife and habitat conservation.
