Artist Bio

Rhonda is a Melbourne based Visual artist that completed both her Bachelor and Masters of Creative Arts Degrees. She went on to build her home-based studio business where she has created unique installation pieces for exhibition, commission artworks and worked on various collaborative projects. Her background in graphic design and administration took her from creating designs under the direction and approval of others to creating her own artworks and gave her an incredible sense of freedom to explore her own style. She has had the opportunity to exhibit in Australia and Germany with her collections and she has sold commission pieces and installations to both private and commercial collectors both locally and internationally.

She has also had the priviledge of studying her craft abroad in Germany and America before going on to her postgraduate studies. She is continually looking for new challenges and often finds the journey has taken her to emotionally surprising places with each creative encounter stretching her beyond her previous abilities. She says:

"I will always be looking for that next creative project where I develop something that holds significance to me personally and my hope is that it evokes a deep connection to the viewer as well".
