Rona developed her passion for painting when she moved to the Highlands of Scotland in 2000. Inspired by the majestic surroundings of the Cairngorms National Park where she lives, she started to paint in acrylics to capture the light and convey the intense colours which are evident in her work today.
Prior to her move to the Highlands, Rona graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art with a First Class Honours Degree in Interior Design, and then went on to gain a Master of Arts Degree in Furniture Design and Technology from Brunel University. It is this background in design which has helped Rona to achieve her distinctive style that she is known for today.
