Ronda wakes every morning and goes directly to her studio. After retiring from a long career in the dental field, the last fifteen spent practicing dental hygiene she has made “paint” her focus.
featuring the work of Ronda Lynn Michel
She paints in oil, acrylic and encaustic. She also loves collage. Very spiritual, Ronda remains open to the cues of the universe and the spontaneity of the moment, and is as curious as an onlooker to see what will appear on her canvas.
Her works have an innocent soulful whimsy.
Leonardo DiVinci said "Where the spirit does not work the hand there is no art" and Ronda would agree whole heartedly.
She lives on a mountain top with her husband Wayne. She has three sons and three grandchildren.
