Biography


Rhonda is a native Marylander who grew up in Howard County.  Spending most of my time drawing, painting and exploring the woodlands by foot or on horseback.  I love beings outdoors and especially with my hands in the dirt.The Art Room in high school was definitely my favorite place to be, and I received the  Wilhide Fine Arts Award at graduation.  I went on to major in Fine Art at the University of Maryland, College Park.  After college I moved to Annapolis and worked at The Middleton Gallery of International Art on Main Street Annapolis, and then on to Garfinckles Department Store (based in Washington DC) as the Visual Merchandising Manager for the Annapolis store.  Subsequently I  landed in the marine industry designing and fabricating custom upholstery for sailboats for over 30 years.  There I met my husband and we ran our marine business and raised our family on the Chesapeake Bay.Forty years later I have moved to the eastern shore and returned to my first love of painting.  Easton Maryland and the surrounding towns are the perfect environment for this renewed pursuit.
