Rhonda has lived in the small sea-side town of Opunake in Taranaki for most of her life. She has always had a passion for art but being busy with work and children meant that her creativity was channeled in the form of hairdressing in which she has remained for the past 28 years. When her children left home, she had more time on her hands to pursue art in the ways that she loved as a child, through painting. She now creates pieces that reflect the environments that have always surrounded her. She likes to draw attention to seemingly insignificant natural elements such as wildflowers. This is to give people an appreciation for the beauty that always surrounds them but is usually unacknowledged. Painting is a medium that allows her the freedom of expression that she has always loved.
