Meet the Artist:

“I’m an artist, photographer, maker and all-around creative. I specialize in small works of art designed to make a bold statement.  My passion is the beauty of nature and the landscape.” ~ Rhonda


Rhonda received her B.F.A. from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in 1987. Upon completion of her formal studies, she began her career as an artist in the field of photography. Eventually, she owned her business as a professional restoration artist.

Rhonda’s background in photography gave her the training to see color, light and aesthetic compositions, which are strong themes in her art today. She began her career as a painter in 1999 when after a successful twelve-year run, she closed her restoration business.


Rhonda enjoys a certain level of detail in her work, stemming from her years as a restoration artist. Her style is that of semi-realism and considers herself a colorist.


Rhonda resides on a lake in the mountains of Northern Idaho, and her surroundings inspired her to name her studio after one of the local native pine trees – Tamarack Pines, also known as Western Larch.  She works from her home studio but when time and weather permits, she enjoys painting outdoors.


As an artist, Rhonda greatly values the act of creation; making something that was not there before. She experiences pure joy when in the process of creating art, often losing track of time. Rhonda loves to bring that joy to those who view and own her work. It is her ambition to continue growing as an artist while working to portray the enchantment of light in her work.

“Life offers us a wonderful bounty of beauty! I am hopeful that my art will highlight this beauty, instilling in my viewers, the emotion and joy I felt when first creating the work.”

Rhonda is a Signature member of Oil Painters of America.
