About

Rona is an emerging artist, working primarily with oil paint. Rona has always loved bright colours, fuelled by her father’s African heritage and her teenage years spent in tropical Uganda. Rona has been painting and drawing throughout her life, but recently has focused on abstraction in order to emphasise on light, motion and colour.

Rona seeks to employ bold colour contrasts and to create an abstract sense of motion and form, evoking the imagination with an emphasis on emotive painterly techniques (usually using her fingers to apply the paint) and celebrating the natural form of the paint medium.

As Rona explores abstraction, she is particularly fascinated by the variety of scenes and emotive states which are experienced by different viewers of her works. Often a viewer will reveal a new discovery within the piece, continuing the exploratory journey beyond the completion of the painting process.
