Wild, untamed nature. Rona grew up hill climbing in the Cairngorms with a nature loving family.
Her evocative and otherworldly drawings are inspired by her memories and experiences of the flora and fauna from these wild places. Fluids and powders are layered up with detailed mark making, echoing the environment that her spirit animals inhabit. Spills, smudges and stains creep across the surfaces, suggesting a world where things can’t be fully controlled and will find their own path. Working with powdered and liquid charcoal, and often with her hands, sticks or found objects, allows Rona to explore the place where drawing and painting meet.
