ABOUT

BIO

“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 it’s raw, graphic, markmaking, influenced by expressive street arts, her love of texture and her enduring curiosity for creating in all dimensions. For over 30 years, Rhonda Nolan had her studio and raised her family in the heart of Toronto in the Junction area, before relocating to Prince Edward County.

She has a design degree from Ryerson University. She is a self taught painter and collage artist and has been actively painting and exhibiting for over 20 years. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally. 

 

Rhonda is a community player believing that this is what feeds her soul. She teaches expressive arts to all and loves exploring in artistic collaborations in all genres.
