Artist Description

Ron Benoit, originally from upstate New York, migrated to Cache Valley, on the Utah-Idaho border, in 1974. After attending Utah State University, he began a career as a maintenance electrician for a local manufacturer. These skills later proved to be invaluable as he began to acquire tooling and equipment to pursue the art of furnituremaking. By 1982, he realized his true calling. He left the industrial manufacturing world behind in 1996, never to look back. Today, surrounded by a grove of hardwood trees he planted, Preston, Idaho is now his home. There he creates fine art furniture for an ever growing list of discriminating clients. His pieces are sold directly from his studio, and at selected art shows throughout the Intermountain West.
