You'll see that I often work with themes - as do many artists. Occasionally ideas for new projects do tumble out of nowhere, almost full-blown... and then I'm off on a tangent! It seems that I bounce between styles as well as preferred mediums. Besides drawing, painting and sculpting, I make jewelry from metal as well as glass.Rhonda C. Bristol - Art Teacher
'I love bright, vibrant color. I 'feel' color and it is easy to tell by my palette just how I relate to sunlight, carnivals and Carribean culture'.
'People's faces and body language still fascinate and intrigue me. I will always remain a portrait painter at heart. I used to sketch people in N.Y's Greenich Village, after graduating from Boston University- School of the Arts, and really learned my craft there, while learning to draw quickly. I developed a thicker skin and a in-your-face/can-do attitude'.
