About

Biography

     Rhonda Morrison (b.1975) is an abstract artist who lives in rural Northeastern Pennsylvania. Rhonda cannot remember a time she was not an artist. She began to produce large paintings in high school based on social issues that concerned her. She attended Keystone College at the age of 15 to study fine arts.

     Rhonda then took some time off to raise her children and travel. She has now returned to painting, applying her diverse background and experiences to her work. She is inspired by sound, old discarded things, rusted metals, history, and items nature has aged over time. Rhonda loves fusing these items with acrylics and other mediums to express her perspective on life and ancestral history, local, and worldly.

 

Artist Statement 

"Mixed media painting, ink drawings, and stained glass are my chosen path of self-expression. I use them in conjunction with found items from hiking and traveling with my family. As a piece of work develops I cross-pollinate these items with stories of the human condition, and the textures from music to express my ponderings of these relationships. Like pages in a book they establish an abstract narrative flavored by the interconnectedness of life".
