Rona uses a mostly monochromatic palate of oil on canvas to paint images of people. She is interested in the inner psyche and in capturing a particular mood. Rona paints what is close to her and hopes to gain a greater understanding in doing so. Her themes focus primarily on relationships and past works have included the role of women in Japanese society, the family, pregnancy, motherhood, female aging and teenage girls. Originally from Toronto, Canada, Rona lives in Oxford, with her family. Her formal training took place at the NSCAD in Canada. She has had solo shows in Toronto, Ottawa, Tokyo, London and Oxford.
