“My art conveys a process of problem solving. My paintings are a conversation between form energy, texture, and intuition. I have developed a personal pictorial dialect, a language of mark making and symbols that I use to convey my thoughts from a place centered in the moment of creation. I feel best when I speak in this language of strong graphic shapes and gestural marks.”
For many years, Rhonda co-ordinated an art program for Toronto’s inner city homeless people. To which she attributes her love of expressionism. Rhonda’s style is mostly defined by its raw, graphic, markmaking, influenced by expressive street arts, her love of texture and her enduring curiosity for creating in all dimensions.
